And Can It Be That I Should Gain?

Charles Wesley
1707 - 1788

And can it be that I should gain   An int'rest 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?


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.


No condemnation now I dread,   I am my Lord's and He is mine;
Alive in Him,  my living Head,   And clothed in righteousness divine.


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?

The church featured in today's post is St. John Center Lutheran Church in East Earl, PA.     The church was built in 1782 (the same time period in which this beautiful hymn was written).
