Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found -
Wasblind, but now I see so clearly

And hallelujah,
Grace Like Rain falls down on me
And hallelujah,
And all my stains are washed away -
They're washed away...

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did thatgrace appear
The hour I first believed


When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing Your praise
Than when we first begun...


And hallelujah...
And hallelujah...
And hallelujah...
And hallelujah,
And all my stains are washed away -
They're washed away...

    Hallelujah! The lord is such a graciuous god! His love never fails! I turned my back on him but he is a gracious god! He pulled me out, rather came into the pit i was into and carried me. His love does not hinge on ours, it does not diminish when our love for him does! His love is uncaused because his very nature is love. I am overwhelmed with such love. Thank you jesus!

    What an incredibly powerful song. God pours his love and grace out on us, cleansing us from our sin and shame. What an awesome gift for us who are so unworthy. All this and all we have to do is ask. Can anything else be more amazing than this? I think not. Just powerful!

    It means, to me at least, how someone went from being a non-believer to a believer. The grace of god and his son jesus showed non believers the light to be able to follow the correct path
