Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace
-- John Newton, 1760/1770

"Amazing Grace", how sweet
the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now
am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear..
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good
to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

"Amazing Grace", how sweet
the sound,
That saved a wretch like me...
I once was lost but now
am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.
