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 His sacred head
For such a worm as I.


O who is like Jesus, hallelujah,
Praise ye the Lord,
There’s none like Jesus, hallelujah,
Love and serve the Lord.

Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut His glories in,
When God the mighty Maker died
For man the creature’s sin.


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.
