(Folk tune, Lyrics by John Newton, 1725-1807)
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.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
