LYRICS: AMAZING GRACE

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

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

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace that fear relieved;
Oh how precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed.

Well, when we've been here ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun;
We have no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me;
Oh I once was lost, but now I'm found,
I was blind, but now I see.
