Amazing Grace

Hymns #894

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,

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