Hymn 76 - At the Cross

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Alas, and did my Saviour bleed

And did my Sov’reign die?

Would He devote that sacred head

For sinners such as I?

Was it for crimes that I have done

He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity, grace unknown,

And love beyond degree!

Well might the sun in darkness hide,

And shut his glories in,

When Christ the mighty Maker died

For man the creature’s sin.

But drops of grief can ne’er repay

The debt of love I owe;

Here, Lord, I give myself away,

’Tis all that I can do.


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

And the burden of my heart rolled away,

It was there by faith I received my sight,

And now I am happy all the day!
