Verse 1:
           Eb      Ab       Eb
And can it be that I should gain
                   Ab6       Eb
An interest in the Saviour's blood?
                   Bb/D       Cm7
Died He for me who caused His pain,
           Ab     Fm7      Bbsus4   Bb
For me who Him to death pursued.
        Ab               Eb
Amazing love, how can it be
                                  Bbsus4  Bb
That Thou my God shouldst die for me?
        Ab               Cm7
Amazing love, how can it be
             Eb           Bbsus4  Bb   Eb  Ab/Eb  Eb
That Thou my God shouldst die       for me?

Verse 2:
'Tis mystery all the Immortal dies,
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the first-born seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine.
'Tis mercy all let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.
'Tis mercy all let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.

Verse 3:
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.
'Tis mercy all immense and free,
For O my God, it found out me.

Verse 4:
Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's light.
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light.
My chains fell off, my heart was free;
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
My chains fell off, my heart was free;
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

Verse 5:
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 the eternal throne
And claim the crown through Christ my own.
Bold I approach the eternal throne
And claim the crown through Christ my own.
