Lets sing “And can it be” come to the altar of God and meet with God
And can it be?
And can it be, that I should gain
An interest 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! 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.
Like his brother, Charles Wesley returned from the mission fields of Georgia with an intense feeling of failure. He came back to London in December 1736 to an ordered life of rigorous piety and good works. He worked and studied, but found no peace. It was in May 1738, lying sick at the house of a friend, that he read Martin Luther’s commentary on Galatians 2: 20. Suddenly, the words struck home and he knew the assurance of his acceptance by God. Over the coming days and weeks hr found the peace that he had been pursuing. He learned, as we all must, that nothing he had done (or not done ) could keep him apart from God’s love. That love is amazing. The gift is free.
