Amazing Grace

Date recorded: March 28, 2014

Words by: John Newton

Music by: Early American Melody

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.

‘Twas 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
I have already come.
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

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

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’ve first begun.

Absolutely the most wonderful thing to do for the family of God! Thank you so much. I have sent the link to all of our church family. We are about 70% Senior Citizens and this is such a blessing to us. Blessings, Bobbi Newberry
