#67: How Can If Be?

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


O Savior, as my eyes behold The wonders of Thy might untold,

The heav’ns in glorious light arrayed, The vast creation Thou hast made —

And yet to think Thou lovest me — My heart cries out, “How can it be?”


How can it be? How can it be?

That God should love a soul like me, O how can it be?


As at the cross I humbly bow And gaze upon Thy thorn-crowned brow,

And view the precious bleeding from By cruel nail so bruised and torn,

Knowing Thy suff’ring was for me, In grief I cry, “How can it be?”



How can it be? How can it be? Was ever grace so full and free!

From heights of bliss to depths of woe In loving-kindness Thou didst go,

From sin and shame to rescue me — O Love Divine, How can it be?
