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.

In the Bible we read of how Saul persecuted the early church, he tortured and murdered. But look at how our loving Jesus redeemed Saul who then was renamed Paul . Paul went on to write 'For by grace are ye saved, through Faith and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. '

This Hymn written by Newton reminds me that we have a loving Father in heaven, it doesn't matter to him what we've done, His blood and grace is enough. Thank you Jesus.

John Newton wrote this song to seek forgiveness for himself. He was a slave trader and the act of slavery and torture went hand in hand for years. I hope he was forgiven for his barbarian acts but this song will never leave my lips.

Quite Inspiring! When I look at how far the Lord has brought me to where I am today, despite all the hurdles / challenges of life, I can not but give God thanks for His amazing Grace upon my life.

From today after internalizing the meaning of this song which I have been hearing time and again without caring, it has changed my life.

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.
