Tune: Arranged by Eld. Edmund Dumas, 1869
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Alas! and did my Savior bleed,
And did my Sov'reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?


O come, sinner, you will hear
The Savior say, “Weep not for me.”
See the Savior on the cross!
O sinner, hear Him cry,
“Eloi, Eloi, lama sabacthani.”

Was it for crimes that I had done,
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity, grace unknown,
And love beyond degree!
