Description

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. Yes, we're thinking about Ash Wednesday ... 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.
