Hymnal Devotions

Scripture references: Romans 5:8; Romans 8:1-3; Hebrews 9:11-12; 1 Peter 1:18-19

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?

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 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.

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.
(Charles Wesley 1707-1788)

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

    Singing along
    the second and third stanzas are my favorite,… tis mercy all immense and free…. and ‘my chains fell off, my heart was free….. are my favorite lines.
    I so love this song.
    God bless you Ma for blessing my soul with this piece.

    Love..
