Verse 1
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?
Amazing love how can it be
That Thou my God shouldst die for me?
Verse 2
'Tis 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
'Tis mercy all let earth adore
Let angel minds inquire no more
'Tis mercy all let earth adore
Let angel minds inquire no more
Verse 3
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 4
Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's light
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
My chains fell off, my heart was free
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee
Verse 5
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
