Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me;
I once was lost but now I am found,
I 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.
Twas grace that brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead us home.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when we'd first begun.
