Amazing Grace
John Newton 1789

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me ,
I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.

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

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 first begun.
