O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
And can it be that I should gain
An int'rest in the Saviour'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?

'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.

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 quick'ning 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,
I am my Lord's and He is mine;
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed with righteousness divine.
Bold, I approach the eternal Throne,
And claim the crown, thro' Christ my own!

Chorus:
Amazing love, How can it be
That Thou my God, shouldst die for me?
