Can it Be?

Justin Taylor posted the background and Scriptural allusions for Charles Wesley's "And Can it Be". It's my favorite hymn that I think every believer should know and sing. It's a beautiful arrangement of the Gospel. Check it out.

4. 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.
