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 brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

Verse 4
Yes, when this heart and flesh shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the vail
A life of joy and peace.
