Amazing Grace

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.
‘Twas grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace will bring us home

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Then when we 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.


Extra verse we haven’t sung:

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


John Newton
