I was so scared of everything you put in front of me
I've been arching every part of me
Just to see
Why you need me to be
The boy you need me to be

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saves a wretch like me
I once was lost
And now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

I just wanna see

I'm the type of person who lets fear drive
I'm the type of guy who lets it drive
Cause I'm addicted, I'm needy,
I'm lost without you
I need you
I name you

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saves a wretch like me
I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

Amazing grace (amazing grace)
How sweet the sound (how sweet)
That saved a wretch like me (that saved a wretch like me)
I once was lost
But now I'm found (you know I'm found)
Was blind but now I see

Amazing grace (you're amazing)
How sweet the sound (you're amazing)
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost (it feels so bad when you're lost and alone)
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

    In the end god is our rock and nothing can replace that. I look at it this way: we all have a god shaped hole in our heart that only he can fill. No person, item, relationship, or knowledge can fill it. God's grace and love for his people is trully amazing. Thats what this song means. The price he paid is amazing.

    This song is truly and honestly amazing.
    Basically what this song is saying is...
    I know I've sinned.
    I know I do wrong.
    I know that I'm not perfect,
    But without God, we are NOTHING!
    We can't live without him.

    Honestly, the first time I heard it,
    My friend Nate was singing it...and I thought nothing of it,
    Because I wasn't who I am today.
    And I wasn't at this point in my relationship with God.
    I didn't realize it's actual meaning until I heard it the other day and said woah.
    I realized that Jesus died for us [we are the wretches].
    I was blind in my faith [I couldn't see God's amazingness].
    I didn't know that God was calling to me [I couldn't hear him. I was too focused on what I wanted rather than what he wanted].
    This song is more than just singing Amazing Grace a few times plus a few words.
    This is the story of our lives!

    Without Christ, we fail.
    But with him, all thing are possible.

    I need god for every part of my life, without him everything i do is meaningless, and will never amount to what it can with his grace, guidance, and help. Christ died on the cross for my sins so that he can help me overcome my fear, and so that he instead of that fear is what drives me to do things, and without christ i am incomplete.

    Okay, a lot of people are saying this song is about god and god alone. And i can see that point of view. But being saved by someone is an amazing feeling. Being saved by, sure, a boyfriend or girlfriend, for instance. But have you ever felt like you couldn't go on and your mother was there to help you? This isn't about just god. This is about being saved by someone.

    To me, this song is about my special someone. When we met, i was in a dark place. Things are still pretty dim. But when i hold his hand, i feel less lost. We guide each other out of our darkness and while alone we're blind, together we can see.

    To be saved by someone you love, or are learning to love, is a wonderful thing, and that's what this song means to me.

    i had just gotten out of the hospital after visiting my grandfather. i walked out of there feeling scared and alone. i knew he wasnt going to live to see another week. driving on the highway road home a violent snow storm was upon me. and to make matters worse tears were fogging up my eyes and i could hardly see. i had put this song on a mix cd and it just happened to be playing. i listened to it once...replayed it and started to sing softly, then replayed it again and belted out my lungs. while screaming out this song i had released a lot of anger, fear, frustration, and a whirlwind of other emotions. after playing this song a few times i knew things were going to be tough but it would all be ok. God had His hands on me that night and guided me home safely. He also showed me that i have been living a life of fear in things that He has under control. that night i learned to just let my problems go for there is so many bigger plans in life for me and that fear is just getting in the way. i love my grandfather and will miss him dearly and i know that il see him again for he was a strong believer. thank you Father for keeping a watchful eye. I Love You.
