For me, O did my Saviour bleed,

And did my Sove-reign die,

Would he de-vote that sacred head 

For such a worm as I!

Would he de-vote that sa-cred head

For such a worm as I!

Was it for crimes that I had 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 Lord, was crucified

For man, the rebel's sin.

Thus might I hide my blushing face

While his dear cross appears;

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,

And melt my eyes to tears.

But tears of grief can ne'er repay

That debt of love I owe;

Here, Lord, I give myself away,

'T is all that I can do.
