Original Key: Eb


Verse 1:
           E♭      A♭       E♭
And can it be that I should gain
                   A♭6       E♭
An interest in the Saviour's blood?
                   B♭/D       Cm7
Died He for me who caused His pain,
           A♭     Fm7      B♭sus4   B♭
For me who Him to death pursued.
        A♭               E♭
Amazing love, how can it be
                                  B♭sus4  B♭
That Thou my God shouldst die for me?
        A♭               Cm7
Amazing love, how can it be
             E♭           B♭sus4  B♭   E♭  A♭/E♭  E♭
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.

And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior's blood
Died He for me who caused His pain
For me who Him to death pursued
Amazing love how can it be
That Thou my God shouldst die for me
Amazing love how can it be
That Thou my God shouldst die for me

'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

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

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night
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

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
