And can be that I should gain,
An interest in my Savior's blood?
Died for me, who caused his pain?
For me, who him to death pursued?

Amazing love, how can it be
That thou my God should die for me
Amazing love, how can it be
That thou my Lord shouldst die for 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 with 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
