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

It was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
And how precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believe

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Twas grace that led me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

When we've been there ten thousand
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then wen we first begun

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
