12. AT THE CROSS

 

Alas, and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

 

CHORUS

At the cross, at the cross
Where I first saw the light
And the burden of my heart
rolled away
It was there by faith
I received my sight
And now I am happy all the day!

 

VERSE 2

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

 

VERSE 3

Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in
When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man the creature's sin

 

VERSE 4

Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness
And melt my eyes to tears

 

VERSE 5

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

132. EN LA CRUZ

 

Con pena amarga fui a Jesús
Mostréle mi dolor
Perdido, errante, ví su luz
Bendíjome en su amor

 

CHORUS

En la cruz, en la cruz
Do primero vi la luz
Y las manchas de mi alma yo lavé
Fue allí por fe do vi a Jesús
y siempre feliz con Él seré

 

VERSO 2

Sobre una cruz
mi buen Seńor
su sangre derramó
Por este pobre pecador
A quien así salvó

 

VERSO 3

Venció la muerte
con poder
Y al cielo se exaltó
Confiar en Él
es mi placer
Morir no temo yo

 

VERSO 4

Aunque Él se fue
solo no estoy
Mandó al Consolador
Divino Espíritu que hoy
Me da perfecto amor
