(Early American Melody)
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.
grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved:
How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed!
many dangers, toils, and snares, I have al ready come;
Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me
Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be As long as life endures.
when this flesh and heart shall fail, And motal life shall cease,
I shall possess, with in the veil, A life of joy and peace.
