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

It was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains, my chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, amazing grace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below
Will be forever mine, will be forever mine
You are forever mine, You are, You are
You are forever mine, You are forever mine

My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, amazing grace

My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, amazing grace
Amazing love, amazing grace
Amazing love, amazing grace

    I had never heard anything but the original sang out of church hymnals. The first time I heard it I was floored. I always that the original was one of the most powerful songs ever, but now that I have listened to Michael W. Smiths' rendition it has moved me even more. I listen to the New Hallalujah cd continuously. I will set this song on repeat and listen to it several times.
