At The Cross

Lyrics ~ Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Chorus ~ Ralph E. Hudson, 1843-1901

Stanza 1:

Alas! and did my Savior bleed?

And did my Sov'reign 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. 



Stanza 2:

Was it for crimes that I have done

He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity! Grace unknown!

And love beyond degree! 



(Chorus) 



Stanza 3:

Well might the sun in darkenss hide

And shut its glories in,

When Christ, the mighty Maker, died

For man the creature's sin. 



(Chorus) 



Stanza 4:

Thus might I hide my blushing face

While His dear cross appears;

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,

And melt mine eyes to tears. 



(Chorus) 



Stanza 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! 



(Chorus)
