Amazing Grace

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.

T'was 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
we have already come.
Tis grace that brought us safe thus far
and grace will lead us home.

When we've been there ten thousand years
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
then when we first begun.
