  5. 5. 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.<br />T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.And Grace, my fears relieved.How precious did that Grace appearThe hour I first believed.<br />Through many dangers, toils and snaresI have already come;'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus farand Grace will lead me home.<br />The Lord has promised good to me.His word my hope secures.He will my shield and portion be,As long as life endures.<br />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.<br />When we've been here ten thousand yearsBright shining as the sun.We've no less days to sing God's praiseThan when we've first begun.<br />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. <br /><br />
