1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see.
Shout, shout for glory,
Shout, shout aloud for glory;
Brother, sister, mourner,
All shout glory, hallelujah!
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
Thro' 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.
The earth will soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
