At The Cross

 at the cross

 

Alas, and did my Savior bleed, and did my Sovereign die

Would He devote that sacred head, for someone such as I

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!

 

Was it for crimes that I have done, He suffered on the tree

Amazing pity, grace unknown, and love beyond degree

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!

 

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

When Christ, the mighty Maker died

For man the creature’s sin

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!

 

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!
