AND CAN IT BE? - by Charles Wesley (1707-1788) - Public Domain

    1. 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?
   
   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.
   
           
   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.

   4. Long my imprisoned spirit lay
      Fast bound 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.
          
  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 'ternal throne
     And claim the crown thru Christ my own.
