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.

My favorite verse seems to be missing: Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; ‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.

I sing this song to my 4 year old twin sisters. I’ve been singing them this song since they were 3 days old. Singing it to them tonight was bitter sweet because I’m headed off to boot camp for the United States Marine Corps in 3 weeks and I’m not gonna get many more moments like this with them.

I’ve been singing this song to my granddaughter since the day I met her. It’s the one song that relaxes her and helps her go to sleep. Teaching her God’s love for her is my most important role as her “nanny.”

This hymn is etched in my memory of church and Sunday School. It means everything to me at this moment. I have been very sad and fearful due to a struggle in our family. It is specifically between our 2 30 something sons. I have felt some responsibility as one son Harbors deep negative memories from their time growing up. I have only been partially informed. The uncertainty has torn me apart. This hymn is a gift from my Father in heaven to me. I feel some hope now and tremendous gratitude for the gift of God's Holy Son.

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.
