This version of the song, At the Cross, comes from 2 years ago when I was thinking of doing a podcast called Hymns for My Grandchildren.

I recorded 2 episodes with music (live vocal and acoustic guitar) and about 3 others with just talking.

Two years and two months later I launched Chuck’s Favorite Things. It was not so limiting as to just hymns. Now I am able to talk about music, movies, memories and more.

So, enjoy this pre-podcast podcast, but most importantly enjoy the hymn, At the Cross.

Isaac Watts, pub.1707
ref. by Ralph E. Hudson, 1885

At the Cross

  1. Alas! and did my Savior bleed
    And did my Sov’reign die?
    Would He devote that sacred head
    For such a worm as I?

    • Refrain:
      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!
  2. Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine—
    And bathed in its own blood—
    While the firm mark of wrath divine,
    His soul in anguish stood.
  3. Was it for crimes that I had done
    He groaned upon the tree?
    Amazing pity! grace unknown!
    And love beyond degree!
  4. Well might the sun in darkness hide
    And shut his glories in,
    When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
    For man the creature’s sin.
  5. Thus might I hide my blushing face
    While His dear cross appears,
    Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
    And melt my eyes to tears.
  6. 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.
