At the Cross

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

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!

Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine—
And bathed in its own blood—
While the firm mark of wrath divine,
His Soul in anguish stood.

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 mighty Maker died,
For man the creature’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 drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
’Tis all that I can do.

Words: Isaac Watts (1707)


En La Cruz

Con pena amarga fui a Jesús; mostrele mi dolor;
Perdido, errante, vi Su luz; bendíjome en Su amor.


En la cruz, en la cruz, do primero vi la luz,
Y las manchas de mi alma Él lavó;
Fue allí, por fe, do vi a Jesús,
Y siempre feliz con Él seré.

Sobre una cruz, mi buen Señor Su sangre derramó
Por este pobre pecador, a quien así salvó.

(Canten el Coro)

Venció la muerte con poder, y al cielo se exaltó;
Confiar en Él es mi placer, morir no temo yo.

(Canten el Coro)

Aunque Él se fue, solo no estoy; mandó al Consolador,
Divino Espíritu que hoy me da perfecto amor.

(Canten el Coro)
