At The Cross Chords (Acoustic)


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 to 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!




                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

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.
