"Amazing Grace" is a well-known Christian hymn. The words were written late in 1772 by Englishman John Newton. John Newton (July 24, 1725 -- December 21, 1807) was an Anglican clergyman who had, at one time, been a slaveship master. They first appeared in print in Newton's Olney Hymns, 1779 that he worked on with William Cowper. John Newton wrote this hymn some time after converting to Christianity in the village of Kineton, in Warwickshire, England.

The lyrics are based on his reflections on an Old Testament text he was preparing to preach on, adding his perspective about his own conversion while on his slave ship, the Greyhound, in 1748.

"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.

T'was 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...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us 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.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

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.

We would like to thank The Blind Boys for this Beautiful Song
