A- mazing 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 re- lieved.
How precious did that grace ap- pear
The hour I first be- lieved.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
and grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope se- cures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life en- dures.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess with- in the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first be- gun.
