Amazing Grace

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 378
Text: John Newton; st 6 anon.
Music: 19th cent. USA melody; harm. by Edwin O. Excell
Tune: ---, Meter: CM

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. 

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

4.	The Lord has promised good to me, 
	his word my hope secures; 
	he will my shield and portion be, 
	as long as life endures. 

5.	Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, 
	and mortal life shall cease, 
	I shall possess, within the veil, 
	a life of joy and peace. 

6.	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.
