NEWTON, John



Amazing Grace


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.


How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds

In a believer's ear!

It soothes his sorrow, heals his wounds,

And drives away his fear.


It makes the wounded spirit whole,

And calms the troubled breast;

'Tis manna to the hungry soul,

And to the weary rest.


Dear Name! the Rock on which we build;

Our shield and hiding-place;

Our never-failing treasury, filled

With boundless stores of grace.


Jesus, our Savior, Shepherd, Friend,

Our Prophet, Priest, and King;

Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,

Accept the praise we bring.


Weak is the effort of our heart,

And cold our warmest thought;

But when we see Thee as Thou art,

We'll praise Thee as we ought.


Till then we would Thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath;

And triumph in that blessed Name

Which quells the pow'r of death.
