And Can It Be That I Should Gain (Amazing Love)

By Charles Wesley, Thomas Campbell

Intro
D/F# G A (repeat) Still the small inward voice I hear,
That whispers all my sins forgiven;
D G D Still the atoning blood is near,
And can it be that I should gain That quenched the wrath of hostile
G D A Heaven.
An interest in the Savior’s blood? I feel the life His wounds impart;
A D/A I know the Savior in my heart.
A
Died He for me, who caused His pain No condemnation now I dread;
— Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
G D Alive in Him, my living Head,
Bm A D And clothed in righteousness divine,
For me, who Him to death pursued? Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
D A D And claim the crown, through Christ my
G A own.
Amazing love! How can it be,

Amazing love how can it be
’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:

Who can explore His strange design?
D/F#
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me
To sound the depths of love divine.
D/F# G A D/F# G A
’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!
