Amazing Grace Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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.
Verse 2
In evil long I took delight,
Unawed by shame or fear
Till a new object met my sight,
And stopped my wild career.
Verse 3
3. I saw one hanging on a tree,
In agonies and blood
Who fixed his languid eyes on me,
As near his cross I stood.
Verse 4
4. Sure, ne'er until my latest breath,
Can I forget that look
It seemed to change me with his death,
Though not a word He spoke.
Verse 5
5. My conscience felt and owned the guilt,
And plunged me in despair
I saw my sins his blood had shed
And helped to nail Him there.
Verse 6
6.Alas, I knew not what I did,
But all my tears were vain;
Where could my trembling soul be hid,
For I the LORD had slain.
Verse 7
7. A second look He gave that said;
"I freely all forgive" !
This blood is for my ramson paid,
"I died that thou mayest live."
Verse 8
8. Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear,
The hour I first believed.
Verse 9
9. Through many dangers,toils and snares,
I have already come;
Tis Grace hath bro't me safe thus far,
And Grace will lead me home.
Verse 10
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
His will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Verse 11
Yes! when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the vail,
A life of joy and peace.
Verse 12
12. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But GOD who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.
Verse 13
13. 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!
