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.

You left out a verse.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,

I have already come,

Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.

Traditionally, this is the 3rd verse.

The United Methodist Hymnal has another verse (5)

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,

And mortal life shall cease,

I shall possess Within the veil.

A life of joy and peace.

If you are going to publish the lyrics, you should publish all of them. The hymn tell a very important story. You need tell the whole story.

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.
