671 - Amazing Grace

1982 Hymnal


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 fear relieved;
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.

The Lord has promised good to me, His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.

Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.

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