LYRICS

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!

Thro' many dangers, toils, and snares,    I have already come; 'Tis grace hath 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.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,    And mortal life shall cease; I shall possess, within the veil,    A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,    The sun forbear to shine; But God, who call'd me here below,    Will be forever mine.
