Amazing Grace

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.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
  And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
  The hour I first believed!
The Lord hath promised good to me,
  His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
  As long as life endures.
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.

We sing this song in our AA convention every year, it speaks to everyone differently of course, but as someone truly lost and now a believer in something greater than myself it is timeless and so heart felt it moves me to tears. GB

To The Family of Poet John Newton, he must be in double heaven to write such a heartfelt song from the entire vessel of the human body. GOD must have given him the right hand of fellowship when he entered the golden gates of the heavenly pearls.Mr. Newton must have had two hearts after GOD gave him a new one.

Such a peace when hearing this song. A loved one of ours entered into Heavens gates with this song in her heart.

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.

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.
