AND CAN IT BE (REDUX)
Lyrics by Josh McGary
Original Music & Lyrics by Charles Wesley (1738)

[Verse 1]

G Em C G
And can it be that I have gained
C G A D
this blessing from my Sav – ior’s blood?
G G Em D
him my relief, But I his pain?
C G D G
betrayed, I brought him death not love
G Em C D
A – maz – ing love! How can it be
G C D G
That you, my God, should die for me?

[Chorus]
D Am7 G
Amazing love! How can it be,
C G D G
That you, my God, could die for me!

[Verse 2]
G Em C G
You left you’re Father’s throne a – bove,
C G A D
And though you were free, and full in grace;
G Em A D
You Emptied Yourself of all but love,
C G D G
And bled to save the human race.
G Em C D
Your mer – cy Great, im – mense and free;
G C D G
O praise my God, that you’ve found me.

[Chorus]
D Am7 G
Amazing love! How can it be,
C G D G
That you, my God, would die for me!

[Verse 3]
G Em C G
Long my im – prisoned spir – it lay
C G A D
A slave in my sin and na – ture’s sight.;
G G Em D
But your love shined a light my way,
C G D G
it lit, my dun – geon bright in night.
G Em C D
My chains are off, my heart is free;
G C D G
And now, I rise to follow thee.

[Chorus]

   D             Am7           G

Amazing love! How can it be,
C G D G
That you, my God, should die for me!

[Verse 4]
G Em C G
No condem – nation now to dread;
C G A D
Je – sus, and all he is is mine!
G G Em D
and now that I live With him my head,
C G D G
I have his righteous – ness as mine
G Em C D
Bold I ap – proach his e– ter – nal throne
G C D G
And claim my crown, through Christ, alone

[Chorus]
D Am7 G
Amazing love! How can it be,
C G D G
That you, my God, did die for me!
