Words for the “Music For Eastertide” CD, Steve Savage(savage.sd@gmail.com)
1. Alas and Did My Savior Bleed? (Isaac Watts)
Alas and did my Savior bleed, and did my sovereign 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, beyond degreeWell might the sun in darkness hide and shut his glories inWhen Christ the great Redeemer died, for we fallen creature’s sin Thus might I hide my blushing face while His dear cross appears,Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, and melt mine eyes to tearsBut drops of grief can ne’er repay the debt of love I owe; here,Lord, I give my self away – tis all, tis all that I can do
3. How Deep the Father’s Love For Us (Stuart Townend)
How deep the Father’s love for us, how vast beyond all measure That He should give His only Son, to make a wretch His treasureHow great the pain of searing loss, the Father turns His face awayAs wounds which mar the chosen One, bring many sons to gloryBehold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shouldersAshamed I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffersIt was my sin that held Him there, until it was accomplishedHis dying breath has brought me life; I know that it is finishedI will not boast in anything, no gifts, now power, no wisdomBut I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrectionWhy should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answerBut this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom
4. O Sacred Head Now Wounded (Latin 12
century, German P. Gerhardt, tr. J.W.
Alexander)O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed downNow scornfully surrounded, with thorns, Thy only crownHow art Thou pale with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn?How does that visage languish which once was bright as morn?What Thou, My Lord, have suffered was all for sinner’s gainMine, mine was the transgression, but Thine the deadly painLo, here I fall, my Savior! ‘Tis I deserve Thy placeLook on me with Thy favor, Vouch-safe to me Thy graceWhat language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest friend?For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?O make me Thine forever; and should I fainting beLord, let me never; never outlive my love for Thee
6.Christ The Lord Is Risen Today (Charles Wesley)
Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens and earth reply. Alleluia!Live again our glorious King, Alleluia! Where, O death is now thy sting? Alleluia!Dying once, He all doth save, Alleluia! Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!Loves redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight the battle won. Alleluia!Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise. Alleluia!Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! Praise eternal as His love. Alleluia!Praise Him, all ye heavenly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!
7.I Know That My Redeemer Lives (Samuel Medley)
I know that my Redeemer lives; what joy the blest assurance gives!He lives, He lives, who once was dead; He lives, my everlasting HeadHe lives to bless me with His love; He lives to plead for me aboveHe lives, my hungry soul to feed; He lives, to help in time of needHe lives, and grants me daily breath; He lives, and I shall conquer deathHe lives, my future to prepare; He lives, to bring me safely thereHe lives, all glory to His Name; He lives, my Savior still the sameWhat joy the blest assurance gives; I know that my Redeemer lives!
8.Jesus Lives and So Shall I (Christian Gellert, tr P. Schaff)
 Jesus lives, and so shall I: Death, thy sting is gone forever!He for me hath deigned to die, lives the bands of death to severHe shall raise me from the dust: Jesus is my hope and trust Jesus lives and reigns supreme, and His kingdom still remainingI shall also be with Him, ever living, ever reigningGod has promised – be it must: Jesus is my hope and trust Jesus lives and by His grace, victory o’er my passions givingI will cleanse my heart and ways, ever to His glory livingMe He raises from the dust: Jesus is my hope and trust Jesus lives – I know full well, naught from Him my heart can severLife nor death nor powers of hell, joy nor grief hence-forth foreverNone of all His saints is lost: Jesus is my hope and trust Jesus lives – and death is now but my entrance into gloryCourage, then, my soul, for thou hast a crown of life before thee Thou shalt find thy hopes were just: Jesus is my hope and trust
9. He Is Risen From the Dead (Steve Savage)
On the cross He bore our sins, He was made the curse for usSuffered all the shame and pain, that we might live againHe is risen from the dead, He is alive, He lives forever Temple curtain ripped in twain, ripped in half from top to bottomWomen came at break of day, found the stone was rolled awaySaw His grave clothes where they lay, then heard the joyous newsHe is risen from the dead, “He is alive, He lives forever”Where O death is now thy sting,” He arose – the grave could not hold HimSeen by women, then the twelve, and then by hundreds moreBy their witness we can know, He rose as He had saidHe is risen from the dead – doubts dispelled – questions answered“Go and tell” His last command, spread the gospel of salvationNow He rules at God’s right hand, His kingdom that shall never endFrom every tongue, from every land, His children now He callsHe is risen from the dead, Lord of lords, King of all kingsNow to Him alone belongs, authority in earth and heavenHe sends His spirit unto us, calls us each by name The gift of grace He bought for us, now is ours to claimHe is risen from the dead, He in us and we in HimHis law is written on our hearts, with faith and love and hope and courage Then someday with trumpet blare, we shall meet Him in the air The dead in Christ shall rise with us, to give un-ending praiseHe is risen from the dead, He is alive, He lives foreverHe shall surely come again, and share His live with endless measureHe is risen from the dead. He is risen from the dead!He is risen from the dead, this we know is trueHe is risen from the dead. He is risen from the dead. He is risen from the dead
10. Amazing Grace (John Newton)
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound – that saved a wretch like me!I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relievedHow precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope securesHe will my shield and portion be as long as life endures Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me homeWhen we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sunWe’ve no less days to sing God’s praise then when we’d first begun
