not the contemporary song. i know the chorus goes like this:

Amazing love how could it be, that God would give His son for me. to pay my sin debt and let me go free. Amazing grace how sweet the sound, I once was lost, but now I'm found. Amazing love how could it be, that Jesus gave His life for me.

If someone could give me the verses, that would be very much appreciated. thanks

You Are My King (Amazing Love)

D/F# G2 Asus A
I'm forgiven, because You were forsaken

I'm accepted, You were condemned

I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me

Because you died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be
D Asus, A
That You my king would die for me?

Amazing love, I know it's true

And It's my joy to honor You

In all I do I honor You

You are my king, You are my king

Jesus, You are my king, Jesus, You are my king

Okay, I know the old one you are talking about, I have the words as follows (what I remember):
Amazing love and can it be
That thou my God,
shouldst die for me
I do not know,
Just what took place--
I can only say,
Twas amazing grace

My soul was bound
In sin so deep--
And then you spoke
My name so sweet--
My chains fell off
My heart was free--
I arose went forth,
And followed thee

Amazing love and can it be
That thou my God,
shouldst die for me
I do not know,
Just what took place--
I can only say,
Twas amazing grace

That is chorus, verse, chorus...which is how I sing it. I believe there is another verse, I am sorry it eludes me for a long time now. I would dearly love to have it my self. This song is so beautiful acapella in three part harmony!

I have sung this for over 45 years, ever since I heard Dottie Rambo sing it.

Amazing Love

1. Amazing love, how could it be?
That Thou, my Lord, should die for me?
How could it be that I should gain
Forgiveness through thy Holy Name?

cho.
My soul was bound in sin so deep;
But when You spoke my name so sweet,
My chains fell off; my heart was freed.
I arose, went forth, and followed thee.

2.
He took my cares; He dried my tears
His amazing love replaced my fears.
I do not know just what took place.
I can only say, it was amazing grace.

V1
Bleeding from the crown of thornes he wore.
His heart was so heavy from the cross he bore.
Wounded and weary he gave his life and so much more.
It was love that took him to the cross, Amazing love.

Chorus:
Amazing love, how could it be, that God would give his son for me, to pay my sin debt and let me go free.
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, I once was lost but now I'm found.
Amazing love, how could it be, that Jesus gave his life for me.

V2
So undeserving of his love.
But oh, I'm thankful for his precious blood.
Though I'll never, understand.
I'll gladly receive the love that took him to the cross, Love Amazing.

Chorus

Hope this helps

You are looking for the contemporary song, because the classic hymn's chorus goes

Amazing love, O what sacrifice, the Son of God, given for me;
my debt he pays and my death he dies,
that I might live, that I might live.

The song the requester was looking for was written by Susan McGill of the Victorious Valley Girls Home...
