Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear 
And grace my fears relived
How precious did that grace appear 
The hours I first believed
Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see

Now when we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise 
That when we first begun
Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see

Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see
