And Can It Be That I Should Gain Lyrics & Chords

By Charles Wesley

(G)And can it be that (C)I (D)should (G)gain An (C)int'(D)rest (G)in the (A)Savior's (D)blood? Died He for (G)me, who caused His (D)pain? For (C)me, who (G)Him to (D)death pur(G)sued? Amazing love! how (C)can it (D)be That (C)Thou, my (G)God, should (D)die for (G)me? 'Tis mystery all! Th'Immortal dies! Who can explore His strange design? In vain the firstborn seraph tries To sound the depths of love divine! 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore, Let angel minds inquire no more. 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. [Refrain] 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. [Refrain] 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.
