AT THE CROSS LYRICS

Sharing is caring!

 

  1. Alas, and did my Saviour bleed

And did my Sovereign  die?

Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?

 

         At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

         And the burden of my heart rolled away

         It was there by faith I received my sight,

         And now I am happy all the day!

 

  1. Was it for crimes that I have done,

He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity! grace unknown!

And love beyond degree!

 

  1. Well might the sun in darkness hide,

And shut his glories in,

When Christ, the mighty Maker, died

For man the creature’s sin.

 

  1. But drops of grief can ne’er repay

The debt of love I owe:

Here, Lord, I gave myself away,

‘Tis all that I can do!
