Early this morning, I was gratefully reflecting on how wonderful it is to be saved by grace. Of course, you can’t speak of God’s Saving Grace without remembering God’s Unfailing & Unconditional Love ~ Oh, what Amazing Love! :)

Thinking about God’s great love for us then brought this hymn to my mind – Amazing love, how can it be, that thou my God should die for me?

Be blessed as you read and reflect on the lyrics of this powerful and beautiful hymn by Charles Wesley (1707-1788). You may also listen and sing along on YouTube.

And Can It Be that I Should Gain (aka Amazing Love)

Verse 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!





Verse 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!
Amazing love! How can it be,
that thou, my God, shouldst die for me!

Verse 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!
Amazing love! How can it be,
that thou, my God, shouldst die for me!

Verse 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!
Amazing love! How can it be,
that thou, my God, shouldst die for me!

Verse 5
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!
Amazing love! How can it be,
that thou, my God, shouldst die for me!

Bomi’s Reflection
Amazing Love, How can it be?
That thou my God should die for me!
Amazing Love, How can it be?
That Almighty God should die for me!
