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.
Long my imprisoned spirit lay fastbound 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.
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 th'eternal throne, and claim the crown, thru Christ my own. Amazing love how can it be, that thou, my God, shouldst die for me.
