Music and lyrics by John Newton unless specified.
[NOTE] This song can be played to the tune of "House of the riseing son"
The first virse is writen with chording of how I play it.

1) [Am]Amazing [c]grace, how sw[D]eet the [F]sound [Am]that saved a 
[C]wretch like [E7th]me. Oh I [Am]once was [C]lost,but [D]now am
[F]found, [am]was blind, but [Em]now I[Am] see.

2) "Twas grace that tought my hart to fear, and grace my fearrelieved;
How precious did that grace appear, the hour I first belived.

3) Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come.
Tis grace that brought us safe thus far, and grace will lead ushome.

4) We've been there ten thousand years bright shinning as thesun.
We've no less days to sing gods praise than when we first begun.

5) How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a belivers ears.
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, and drives away hisfears.

6) Must jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No, theres a cross for everyone,
and theres a cross for me.

(This verse by Arlo Guthrie)
7)Should I be alofted to the skies, on flowery beds of ease.
While others strive to enterprise, and sail on bloody seas.

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

9)Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

10)The earth shall soon disolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be for ever mine.
                         Sincerly -Brian Marlin
