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 that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this heart and flesh shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
