Hymn: "And Can it Be That I Should Gain"

    And Can It Be That I Should Gain?
    By: Charles Wesley

    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?

    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.
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst 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.
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

    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?
