1. And can it be that I should gain An int’rest in the Savior'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? Amazing love! How can it be That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
2. He left His Father’s throne above So free, so infinite His grace! Humbled Himself and came in love, And bled for Adam’s helpless race! ’Tis mercy all, immense and free! For O my God, it found out me! ’Tis mercy all, immense and free! For O my God, it found out me!
3. Long my imprisoned spirit lay, Fast bound in sin and nature’s night. Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray; I woke— the dungeon flamed with light! My chains fell off, my heart was free; I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. My chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
4. 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 ternal throne, And claim the crown, through Christ my own. Bold I approach th’eternal throne, And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
