HYMN 311

1.  ALAS, and did my Saviour bleed? 

     And did my Sovereign die? 

     Would He devote that sacred head 

     For such a worrh, as I?

Chorus:  At the cross, at the cross where l first 

               saw the light

               And the burden of my heart rolled

               away (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 l have done, 

     He groaned upon the tree? 

     Amazing pity! grace un-known! 

     And love beyond degree!

3.  Well migth the sun in darkness hide 

     And shut his glories in,

     When Christ, the mighty Maker, died 

     For man the creature‘s sin.

4.  But drops of grief can ne'er repay 

     The debt of love I owe:

     Here, Lord, l give myself away 

     ‘Tis all that I can do!  Amen
