Thank you so much . With it being so long ago that I sang this hymn at secondary school , it just pops into my head randomly and is engrained in my heart .
Thank you again.

Hello,
Brother William S.S.F. wrote it and his original has 5 verses. The 3 verse setting appeared in Youth Praise, for which some of the original was moved about and even missed out !

Thank you, I hadn't heard let alone sung this hymn in a very long time but just lately haven't been able to get it out of my head. Now I will be able to sing and hum it to myself correctly. Blessings to you all x.

Hi there, we sing the last line of verse 2:
You left that Holy PLACE, Your endless love to prove
and verse 3 line 1 :
Can it be true, the things they did to You?
.........
last line:
Oh, Christ my Lord, You did all this for me..... yes it true.

Dear Sir, This is the exact text and layout of the hymn CAN IT BE TRUE? as far as I can make it out.
I also used to sing it with our Christian youth group and it moves me yet.
Why it dropped out of use - I cannot tell because both the words and the music are so beautiful. As a poet, I am often disappointed with the unworked quality of the lyrics found in many modern hymns, often with not an accurate rhyme in sight! But this is a cracker! Grace be with you. Best Regards, Jake.

1. Can it be true, the things they say of You?
You walked this earth, sharing with friends You knew,
All that they had, the work, the joy, the pain,
That we might find the way to heaven again.

2. And day by day, You still return this way,
But we recall, there was a debt to pay;
Out of Your love for Your own world above,
You left that Holy thing,Your endless love to prove.

3. Can it be true, the same things they did to You?
The death, the shame, and were Your friends so few?
Yet You returned again alive and free.
Can it be true, my Lord, it had to be.

I remember this song very well. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find an audio or video recording of it. It was a staple in my youth group during the mid 80's.
