And can it be that


    • And can it be that I should gain 
    • An interest in the Saviour's blood? 
    • Died He for me, who caused His pain? 
    • For me, who Him to death pursued? 
    • Amazing love! how can it be 
    • That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? 

    • 'This mystery all! The Immortal dies: 
    • Who can explore His strange design? 
    • In vain the first-born seraph tries 
    • To sound the depths of love divine! 
    • 'This mercy all! let earth adore, 
    • Let angel minds inquire no more. 

    • He left His Father's throne above, 
    • So free, so infinite His grace; 
    • Emptied Himself of all but love, 
    • And bled for Adam's helpless race. 
    • 'This mercy all, immense and free; 
    • For, O my God, it found out me. 

    • Long my imprisoned spirit lay 
    • Fast bound in sin and nature's night; 
    • Thine eye diffused a quickening ray, 
    • I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; 
    • My chains fell off, my heart was free; 
    • I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. 

    • No condemnation now I dread; 
    • Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! 
    • Alive in Him, my living Head, 
    • And clothed in righteousness divine, 
    • Bold I approach the eternal throne, 
    • And claim the crown, through Christ my own
