AMAZING GRACE


AMAZING GRACE

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

It was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relived
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believe

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
This grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home


The Lord has promise good to me
His words my hope secure
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil
A life of joy and peace

This earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear the shine
But God who called me here below
Will be forever mine
