AMAZING GRACE - Rev. John Newton (except the final stanza)  

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 hath 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.

And when this flesh and heart shall fail And mortal life shall cease I shall possess within the vail 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 Shall 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 Than when we first begun!
