amazing grace lyrics – yes

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.

through many dangers, toils and snares
i have already come;
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far
and grace will lead me home.

the lord has promised good to me
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

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.

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’ve first begun.
