And Can It Be? - Hymn

- Verse One -
And can it be that I should gain an interest 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?

- Verse Two -
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!
'Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For O my God, it found out me!

- Verse Three -
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.

Verse Four -
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.
Bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown,
Through Christ, my own.
