AND CAN IT BE?

Charles Wesley, Thomas Campbell

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?

 

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

 

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 through Christ my own

Bold I approach th’eternal throne, and claim the crown through Christ my own
