at the cross

C                                          F          C          G

Alas! and did my Savior bleed and did my Sovereign die?

C                                        Dm           G      C    

Would He devote that sacred head for sinners such as I?

 

C                                          F          C          G

Was it for crimes that I had done he groaned upon the tree?

C                                        Dm           G      C    

Amazing pity! grace unknown! And love beyond degree!

 

 

    Refrain

          C                                    G

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

   G                             C

    And the burden of my heart rolled away,

              F                      C

    It was there by faith I received my sight,

         Dm   G              C

    And now I am happy all the day!

 

 

 C                                         F          C          G

Well might the sun in darkness hide and shut his glories in,

C                                        Dm           G      C    

When Christ, the mighty Maker died, for man the creature's sin.

 

 C                                         F          C          G

Thus might I hide my blushing face while His dear cross appears,

C                                        Dm           G      C    

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, and melt my eyes to tears.

 

     Refrain

 

 C                                         F          C          G

But drops of grief can ne'er repay the debt of love I owe:

C                                        Dm           G      C    

Here, Lord, I give my self away 'tis all that I can do.
