65. And Can It Be That I Should Gain?

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?

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

2 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. [Chorus]

3 No condemnation now I dread,
I am my Lord's and He is mine;
Alive in Him my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine. [Chorus]
