1. How can it be? How can it be?
The story told on Calvary,
Where Jesus died upon the tree,
From sin and death to set us free.

Chorus:
Oh, it was love, 'twas wondrous love,
That bro't our Saviour from above
To give his life upon the tree,
From sin and death to set us free.

2. Why was it so? Why was it so?
That Jesus' blood should have to flow
This sinful, fallen race to save
From death eternal in the grave. [Chorus]

3. Why should he die? Why should he die?
For sinners vile who him deny
When he was pure and knew no sin,
Why should he die such souls to win? [Chorus]
