(John Newton/Traditional American Melody)
A(G)mazing grace how (C)sweet the sound
That (G)saved a wretch like (D7)me!
I (G)once was lost but (C)now am found,
Was (G)blind but (D7)now I (G)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.
Thru many dangers, trials 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.
