Lyrics by Isaac Watts


Thus might I hide my blushing face

While His dear cross appears

Alas! And did my Savior bleed

And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?

Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine
And bathed in its own blood
While the firm mark of wrath divine
His soul in anguish stood

Well might the sun in darkness hide

And shut his glories in

When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man the creature’s sin

Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
’Tis all that I can do.
