At the Cross

Words by Isaac Watts Music by R. E. Hudson

"Alas! and did my Saviour bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?”




"At the Cross” is the name of the new tune by R. E. Hudson for the old hymn by Watts, ”Alas, and did my Saviour bleed.” The words were first published in Watts' “Hymns and Spiritual Songs, ”in 1707, under the title, ”Godly Sorrow Arising from the Sufferings of Christ.” In ”Sacred Songs and Solos” the new tune is used to the hymn ”I'm not ashamed to own my Lord."

The children's evangelist, E. P. Hammond, credits this hymn with his conversion, when he was only seventeen years old.
