1 And can it be that I should gain
An int'rest in the Saviour's blood?
Died he for me, who caus'd his pain?
For me who him to death pursued?
Amazing love! how can it be,
That thou, my Lord, shouldst die for me?

Amazing love! how can it be,
That thou, my Lord, 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;
'Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me! Refrain

3 Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night:
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray;
I woke: the dungeon flam'd with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free--
I rose, went forth, and followed thee.

4 No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, with 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, thro' Christ my own.

NEW! This PowerPoint File has been recently updated to our new format!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
