Amazing Grace

  • (by John Newton)
  • 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.
  • 2.
  • 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
  • And grace my fears relieved;
  • How precious did that grace appear
  • The hour I first believed!
  • 3.
  • Through many dangers, toils and snares,
  • I have already come.
  • 'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
  • And grace will lead me home.
  • 4.
  • The Lord has promised good to me;
  • His word my hope secures.
  • He will my shield and portion be,
  • As long as life endures.
  • 5.
  • 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.
  • 6.
  • The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
  • The sun forbear to shine;
  • But God, who called me here below,
  • Will be for ever mine.
  • 7.
  • When we've been there ten thousand years
  • Bright shining as the sun,
  • We've no less days to sing God's praise
  • Than when we first begun.
