1 Not unto us, not unto us be glory, Lord;
Not unto us but to your name be praise;
Not unto us but to your name all honor be giv'n
For matchless mercy, forgiveness, and grace.

2 Amazing grace -- that chose us e'er the worlds were made;
Amazing grace -- that sent your Son to save;
Amazing grace -- that robed us in your righteousness
And taught our lips to sing glory and praise.

3 O faithful love -- that shepherded through faithless years;
Forgiving love -- that led us to your truth;
Unyielding love -- that would not let us turn from you
But sent us forth to speak pardon and peace.

4 Not unto us but to your name be glory, Lord,
For grace so rich, so wide, so high, so free.
Abide with us till trav'ling days are over and done,
And pilgrim feet lead us home, Lord, to you.
