John Newton – Amazing Grace
Vs 1-4: John Newton
Vs 5: Ascr. to John Rees
LyricsVerse 1 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. Verse 2 ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved; How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed. Verse 3 Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home. Verse 4 The Lord has promised good to me, His Word my hope secures; He will my Shield and Portion be, As long as life endures. Verse 5 Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease, I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace. Verse 6 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine; But God, who called me here below, Will be forever mine. Verse 7 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’d first begun.
