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 has 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 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 called me here below

Will be for ever mine

Below: These are the original

words of Amazing Grace by

John Newton published in 1779
