Sunday's Song - Amazing Grace


Looking back, I can't believe I haven't posted this wonderful old hymn before!  We sang it last Sunday at church and I also just heard my hubby humming it.  It brought a smile to my face, as I hope it does yours!  Happy Sunday!

Amazing Grace

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.

An oldie but a goodie!
It is my favorite.
And so fun to hear bagpipes playing it. As I did recently.
