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.

John Newton, writer of this song, was a slave trader. He saw the injustice and horror of his business and gave his life to God. When you listen you can hear it in his words.

I love this song. It is fun to sing because it makes me feel like my great grandpa is watching me sing and it makes me want to keep singing so I can keep feeling his presence.

I love this song, one of my favorites. I want this song to be sung at my funeral. It was by grace that I was saved and that same grace will lead me home to behold the beauty of the one who saved me.

This song is to be sung at my funeral. How else except by God's amazing grace could I expect to spend eternity with Him.

It took a miracle to put the stars in place,

It took a miracle to hang the world in space;

But when HE SAVED my Soul, cleansed and made me whole.

It took a miracle of Love and GRACE.... I AM A PRODUCT OF GRACE!

This is the most beautiful song ever. We really need our faith to guide us and protect us. Pray for the good of all men, women, children, and pets and wild life. Pray, pray, pray. God hears our prayers.

I love this song, listen to think about my grandma and grandpa. I think about them all the time. I know God sent them to be with Him because it was their time.

This song am going to sign in American Sign Language on May 21 for a celebration of veterans who are still alive and who are dead.

I have a friend who is doing it sign language in PSE language.

Great Grace Indeed! And grace my fears relieved.

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.
