怎能如此──像我這樣罪人,也蒙寶血救贖大恩?
主為我受痛苦鞭傷,也為我死在十架上?
奇異的愛,怎能如此──我主我神為我受死?
何等奇妙!永生主竟受死!有誰能解釋這奧祕?
神聖之愛,廣闊深長,最高天使也難測量,
上主憐憫,超過猜想,世人都當敬拜景仰。
我主離開天上寶座榮華。無量恩惠白白賜下,
謙卑虛已,顯彰慈愛,流血救贖亞當後代,
恩典憐愛,無邊無涯,罪人像我,竟蒙厚愛。
我靈受困,多年在牢獄中;被罪包圍,黑暗重重;
主眼發出復活榮光,我靈甦醒,滿室光明!
枷鎖脫落,心靈獲釋,我就起來跟隨主行。
不再定罪,心中除盡憂愁;我擁有主並祂所有。
主內生活讓祂居首,穿起義袍聖潔無垢;
坦然無懼到寶座前,藉主救贖,獲得冠冕。
副歌:奇異的愛,怎能如此,我主我神,竟為我死!

In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor. In the early part of the same year his religious impressions were much deepene… Go to person page >
