Here are the Amazing Grace Lyrics below:
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 hath 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.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
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’d first begun.
By Apostle Quinson Thomas. Updated on January 18, 2022.
As a beloved hymn, Amazing grace has been sung by evangelical churches throughout America and the world. This song of redemption was written by Anglican Clergyman John Newton.
The song is so well known that in 2006 a real-life story Movie called Amazing Grace was written to chronicle the life of William Wilberforce.
I remember, as a new disciple, I would spend hours upon hours in prayer and in praise and worship.
As a pianist, I would sit at the piano and play songs from the hymnbook and sing to the Lord prophetically. It was an awesome time. It was during those times that I felt the presence of God very strongly. I don't know if you've had a similar experience, but praising and worshipping the Lord invites the presence of God where you are.
Look at this scripture here:
3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
Did you see that? I highlighted it there just in case :)
I know this isn't a teaching section of the site, but I pray that you've learned something very powerful about God - He loves when we honor Him with the sacrifice of praise, and with worship!
Amazing Grace, written by Englishman John Newton, really speaks to the incredible power that God wrought in the Lord Jesus Christ in raising Him from the dead and giving us life by grace as we believe in His Name. This hymn, written about a slave trader who saw the truth about slavery, speaks to the redemptive power of God's grace. May we all know The Truth and may The Truth make us free.
