Love Beyond Degree

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

Was it for sins that I have done
He suffered on the tree?
Amazing pity! Grace unknown
And love beyond degree.

Oh the Lamb, the loving Lamb,
The Lamb of Calvary,
The Lamb that was slain, that liveth again
To intercede for me.

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.
