CAC GHB 318 AND CAN IT BE THAT I SHOULD GAIN


MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD

318-and can it be that I should gain

While we were yet sinners Christ died for us

Rom 5:8

And can it be that I should gain

An interest in the Saviours blood

Died for me who caused his pain

For me who him to death pursued

Amazing love, how can  it be

‘Tis mystery all: the 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.

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!

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.

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
