Lyrics

Verse 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
Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath bro’t me safe this far,
And grace will lead me home.

Verse 4
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.
