I was blind, now I see. --John 9:25
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!
'Twas grace that taught
my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear The
hour I first believed!
Thro' many dangers, toils,
and snares, I have already come;
'Tis grace hath bro't me safe thus far, And
grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised
good to me, His word my hope secures,
He will my shield and portion be As long as
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.

Amazing Grace indeed.
This is my favorite hymn of all.
I hope that you enjoy it as
much as I do.
