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
The Lord hath promised good to me,
  His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
  As long as life endures.
4
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.

Wretch. In the presence of the eternal ever-loving one I can be nothing but a wretch. In the presence of the eternal ever loving one is wholeness, light, life and hope. Thank You LORD.

Amazing Grace, how sweet? Really sweet beyond what human words could describe. This was the song that came to my heart as I woke up this morning, reminding me of the wonderful love of God to me. It's a love that is deep, high, wide and words cannot describe.

When I think of how Jesus left His glory to restory me back to the Father I cry and am humbled. What love.

This was my husband's favorite song. My nephew sang it at my husband's funeral this past

Monday. It has brought me more comfort than anything else. I know that my husband is with our Lord and Savior. And that one day we will be reunited. I'll live forever with my Lord and my husband.

Mmmmmh! Grace, God's grace is amazing. It is a supernatural discrimination, it is divine partiality. It qualifies and elects the undeserved. I AM A LIVING PROOF!

I previously wrote on 2/2015 that the last stanza of this most popular of all English hymns was written by American slaves. This is another testimony of how amazing is grace, that a converted slave trader would have his greatest hymn finished by the slaves he had mistreated.

Today I found out that this tune was also written by slaves. The tune is a plantation song titled "Loving Lambs".

I am in a good place.

I woke up this morning with that feeling, and the word Grace immediately came to my thought.

I have not sung the hymn in a while, I felt compelled to sing and the only words I remembered, are in the second verse.

I don't have my hymn book with me. I am on holiday. So here I am on the balcony, with my phone, having used it to sing all the verses.

Grace! So amazing!!!

God answers prayers!

What powerful words and what true meaning this song is and has.

We are familiar with the hymn "Amazing Grace." Although this is a good hymn, it does not speak of the Triune God as our portion for our enjoyment. When this hymn was written, the experiential knowledge of God among the Lord's people had not come to this point. Even as recent as fifty years ago, Christians did not have the understanding of grace as the Triune God experienced and enjoyed by us. But standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, we have come to know that grace is far more than merely unmerited favor. Grace is the Triune God—the Father, the Son, and the Spirit—processed for our experience and enjoyment.
