And Can It Be

And can be that I should gain, an interest in my 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 Lord should die for me?

Amazing love, how can it be
That thou my God should die for me?

Long my imprisoned spirit lay, Fast bound in sin and nature’s night,
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.

No condemnation now I dread, Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
Alive in Him, my living Head and clothed with righteousness divine,
Bold I approach the eternal throne,
And claim the crown through Christ, my own.
