And Can It Be? Only Part 1 available. Part 2 looked at each verse of hymn

Speaker: Andrew Allan


Information
And can it be that I should gain
an interest in the Saviour'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: 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
'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

 

Still the small inward voice I hear
That whispers all my sins forgiven
Still the atoning blood is near
That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven
I feel the life His wounds impart
I feel the Saviour in my heart
I feel the life His wounds impart
I feel the Saviour in my heart

 

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
Bold I approach th' eternal throne
And claim the crown, through Christ my own
