And Can It Be
Yet, so often people who claim their human and
earthly rights, have not even bothered to find out
what rights accompany citizenship in the Kingdom
of God. There is no excuse for spiritual weakness
and spiritual poverty, when the wealth of Heaven is
freely available to every person who seeks the
Kingdom. It is important to find out about your
rights and privileges. Commence claiming and
possessing them today. There is just one stipulation,
You must believe and live by faith!
And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Saviour’s blood?
Died he for me, who caused His pains
For me, who Him to death pursued
Amazing love how can it be
That thou my God Shouldst die for me.
Tis mystery all, the immortal dies
Who can explore his strange design?
In vain the first born Seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine
Tis mercy all, let earth adore
Let angel minds inquire no more.
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.
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 the eternal throne
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
