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

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

[Chorus]
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
 Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures 
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures 

[Chorus]

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine 
But God, Who called me here below 
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

[Chorus: x2]

 Amazing Love, Amazing Grace
 Amazing Love, Amazing Grace
