Amazing Grace, How Sweet The Sound
A [G] mazing grace, how [C] sweet the [G] sound
That saved a wretch like [D] me!
I [G] once was lost, but [C] now am [G] found,
Was blind, but [D] now I [G] see.
'Twas [G] grace that taught my [C] heart to [G] fear,
And grace my fears re [D] lieved;
How [G] precious did that [C] grace ap [G] pear
The hour I [D] first be [G] lieved!
Through [G] many dangers, [C] toils, and [G] snares,
I have already [D] come;
'Tis [G] grace has brought me [C] safe thus [G] far,
And grace will [D] lead me [G] home.
The [G] Lord has promised [C] good to [G] me,
His word my hope se [D] cures;
He [G] will my shield and [C] portion [G] be
As long as [D] life en [G] dures.
And [G] when this flesh and [C] heart shall [G] fail,
And mortal life shall [D] cease;
I [G] shall possess, wi [C] thin the [G] veil,
A life of [D] joy and [G] peace.
When [G] we've been there ten [C] thousand [G] years,
Bright shining as the [D] sun,
We've [G] no less days to [C] sing God's [G] praise
Than when we'd [D] first be [G] gun.
