Jesus Dies (Station 12)
Words: Isaac Watts, 1707
Music: Alas and Did My Savior Bleed (Traditional)


Jesus Dies (Station 12)
Alas and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sov’reign die!
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

Chorus (not recorded):
Oh, come, sinner, you will hear The Savior say, “Weep not for me,”
See the Savior on the cross! Oh, sinner, hear Him cry,
“Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabacthani.”

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

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.

–Words: Isaac Watts, 1707
