Amazing Grace

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 life endures.

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.
