271. Amazing Grace

1 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.

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

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

4 Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Twas grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

5 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'd first begun.
