Sunday Hymns - Alas and Did My Savior Bleed

Alas, and did my Savior bleed 
And did my Sovereign die? 
Would He devote that sacred head 
For such a worm as I? 
Was it for sins that I had done 
He groaned upon the tree? 
Amazing pity, grace unknown 
And love beyond degree 

My God, why would You shed Your blood 
So pure and undefiled 
To make a sinful one like me 
Your chosen, precious child? 

Well might the sun in darkness hide 
And shut His glories in 
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died 
For man, the creature’s, sin 
Thus might I hide my blushing face 
While His dear cross appears 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness 
And melt my eyes to tears

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
