Amazing grace! how sweet the sound
that sav'd 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 reliev'd;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believ'd!
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me;
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.
Words by John Newton (1725-1807)
