And Can It Be that I Should Gain

And Can It Be that I Should Gain, #363 The United Methodist Hymnal
Verse 1:
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, should die for me?
Amazing love! How can it be that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

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!
