Redeemed Hymn 150 – Alas! and Did My Saviour Bleed?

“The son of God who loved me, and gave himself for me.” -Gal 2:20

1 Alas! And did my saviour bleed?

And did my sovereign die?

Would he devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I


Chorus 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.


2 Was it for crimes that I have done

He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity! Grace unknown

And love beyond degree!


3 Well might the sin in darkness hide,

And shut his glories in

When Christ, the mighty Maker, died,

For man, the creature’s sin.


4 Thus might I hide my blushing face,

Whilst His dear cross appears,

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness

And melt mine eyes to tears.


5 But drops of grief can ne’er repay

The debt of love I owe,

Here, Lord, I give myself away,

‘Tis all that I can do.
