For Unison Voices (or Solo) and C Instrument. This deliciously haunting setting of the familiar text is wonderful with a unison choir, a solo, or a children's choir. Simple, yet simply wonderful.
Alas! and did my Savior bleed,
and did my Sovereign 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!
But drops of tears can ne'er repay
the debt of love I owe.
Here, Lord, I give myself away;
'tis all that I can do.
