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.

Anytime I listen to that song is amazing and it reminds me how God in HIS infinite mercy save my soul, makes me rededicated my life each time I heard the song. What amazing shower on me? His name is ever being praise.

The ten thousand years in verse four refers to the time after the resurrection after all those who have believed in God through our Savior Jesus Christ have gone to be with him for eternity. Thus, “no less days after ten thousand years to sign God’s praise”. Hope that helps Raphael.

This song woke me up this morning and I searched for it here and after singing I have rededicated my life to Christ Jesus again. Thank You Lord for Your amazing Grace on me.

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.
