Once I was dead in sin,
And hope within me died;
But now I’m dead to sin—
With Jesus crucified.

Refrain

And can it be that He loved me,
And gave Himself for me
?
And can it be that He loved me,
And gave Himself for me
?

O height I can not reach,
Oh depth I can not sound,
Oh love, O boundless love,
In my Redeemer found.

Refrain

Oh cold, ungrateful heart
That can from Jesus turn,
When living fires of love
Should on His altar burn.

Refrain

I live—and yet, not I,
But Christ that lives in me;
Who from the law of sin
And death hath made me free.
