Amazing Grace

  1. Amazing grace how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me.
    I once was lost but now I’m found.
    Was blind but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

2. 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 I’m found.
Was blind, but now I see

4. Thru many dangers toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

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

By John Newton
