I had a debt I could not pay

I had a debt I could not pay,
He paid the debt He did not owe,
I needed someone,
To wash my sins away.
And now I sing a brand new song,
"Amazing grace" all day long,
Christ Jesus paid the debt,
That I could never pay.

I can never pay!!

Hallelujah! Saints, when we sing this song, how about replacing "I" with your name. He paid your debt and now you have a new song today "Amazing Grace!"

And now I keep on falling in love with him over and over again×2

And it's gonna be sweeter and sweeter as days go by, what a love between my Lord and I, falling in love with Him over and over again.

But that's not all

Christ lives in me

I once was blind but now I see

It pleased the Father

to reveal the Son in Me

That I become the same as He

Christ now is being formed in me

Till all my death is swallowed up in victory.

William C. Kieffer,

Here is your portuguese translation. It isn't that hard. I just copied the song and went to Google Translate.

On the left side I pasted the version I wanted translated, on the right side I clicked on Portuguese and this is what I came up with.

Good luck and may God be with you.

R. Grosinsky.


Eu tinha uma dívida que eu não podia pagar,

Ele pagou a dívida que Ele não devia,

Eu precisava de alguém,

Para lavar meus pecados.

E agora eu cantar uma canção nova marca,

"Amazing grace" durante todo o dia,

Jesus Cristo pagou a dívida,

Que eu nunca poderia pagar.
