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.

Amazingly this song touches the heart from experience!


Not sure why so attracted by this hymn. I don't get tired of listening to it or come back to re listen. God's grace is just this amazing. We can't tell why but it attracts people. God, You created us, and let us go. We gained so much freedom that we drifted away from the source of life. People, anyone who wants to come back, it's simple, just need to turn back to God

I foster orphan kittens and when they’re sick I sing this song to them while I cradle them in my arms. They calm down and peacefully go to sleep.

THIS Song Is Heart Felt

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.
