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.

All the children loved this song and enjoyed the second verse.

This is a sweet song and heart-touching song! May we have the reality behind this song and know the person of Jesus!


New stanza:

So now my debt is fully paid

And I have peace—night and day

I am not guilty—my sins are washed away

Now I can sing that brand new song

Amazing grace, all day long

Christ Jesus paid the debt

That I could never pay.
