He Died for Me

Very delighted to have received the cd. This is the first cd that Sovereign Grace Ministries worked with Emu Music to produce this to be sold in Australia.

There are many songs that I like in the cd. One of which I have shared in my previous entries before (The Look)

When I first heard "Alas, and Did My Saviour Bleed", I liked the tune of the song. I later learnt that the lyrics were apt for personal reflection. Jesus my Saviour died for an unworthy person like me... what have I done to deserve such sacrifice on an insignficant me?

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

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

My Lord, why would you shed your blood,
So pure and undefiled
To make a sinful one like me
Your chosen, precious child

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 and melt my eyes to tears

We never could be good enough to measure up,but God wants to take us as we come. God is the only one that can take we as we are.
