Hi Darjo74,

Here you are--the hymn name is of "And Can It Be". This version from Cyberhymnal includes the rare 2nd and 5th stanzas.

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, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

2.
'Tis mystery all: th'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.
'Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
Let angel minds inquire no more.

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!

4.
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.

5.
Still the small inward voice I hear,
That whispers all my sins forgiven;
Still the atoning blood is near,
That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven.
I feel the life His wounds impart;
I feel the Savior in my heart.
I feel the life His wounds impart;
I feel the Savior in my heart.

6.
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.
Bold I approach th'eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

God bless!

I'm forgiven because You were forsaken,
I'm accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.
(Repeat x2)

(Chorus)
Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it's true.
It's my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

I'm forgiven because You were forsaken,
I'm accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

(Repeat chorus x2)

You are my King
Jesus You are my King
(Repeat x4)

(Repeat chorus x2)

You are my King
(Repeat x8)

1.
Amazing love, how can it be
That thou, my Lord, should die for me
How can it be that I should gain
Forgiveness through thy holy name.

cho.
My soul was bound in sin so deep
But when He 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.

AMAZING LOVE


AMAZING LOVE how could it be
then how my LORD WOULD DIE FOR me
how could it be that I should gain
FORGIVENESS THROUGH THAT HOLY NAME

My soul was bound in sin so deep
Oh, but when HE SPOKE my name so sweet
my chains fell off, my heart was free
then I arose AND FOLLOWED THEE

HE TOOK my hand when HE DRIED my tears
AMAZING LOVE replaced my tears
I do not know just what took place
I only know it was AMAZING GRACE

My life, my all, I gave it all TO THEE
my service THROUGH ETERNITY
HOW GLORY is that old rugged cross
where the debt was paid for all the love

Until someday my eyes shall see
THE GLORY OF THE KING of Kings
UPON THE THRONE IN THE LAND OF LOVE
I'll THANK HIM FOR HIS AMAZING LOVE
