lyrics

Verse 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?

Chorus:
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God shouldst die for me?

Verse 2:
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!
‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me

Verse 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

Verse4:
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
