1 A-las!     and   did my      Savi- or   bleed? And did     my  Sov-'reign die?
2 Was it     for   crimes that I     have done He    groaned up -on   the   tree?
3 Well might the   sun in      dark -ness hide And   shut    His glo-ries   in,
4 But drops  of    grief can   ne'er re  -pay The    debt    of  love I     owe.

1 Would He     de-   vote that sa-   cred head   For such a worm   as     I!
2 A-maz       -ing   pit-y!    grace un-  known! And love be-yond  de-    gree!
3 When Christ, the   might-y   Mak - er,  died   For man  the crea-ture's sin.
4 Here, Lord,  I     give my-  self  a-   way   'Tis all  that I   can    do!

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

And the   bur-den of my heart rolled a-way

Dsus2 D   G                      D  F#m Bm
It    was there by faith I received my  sight,

And now I am hap-py all the day!

I will cling to the old rugg-ed cross,

         G            D       D7 G
And exch-ange it some day for a  crown.
