Description

From our archives! SAB and organ. A lyrical, tender setting of the John Newton text with an original tune. A beautiful anthem for any season, but especially appropriate when "grace" is the theme of the day.

Lyrics

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 fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

The Lord has promised go,Od 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 years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.
