Amazing Grace/How Can I Keep from Singing

can't hear it?

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a soul like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind, but now I see.

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

Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come
Tis grace has brought us safe thus far
And grace will lead us home.

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

My life goes on in endless song
High above earth’s lamentation
I can hear the real, though far off song
That hails a new creation

No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that rock I’m clinging
Since Love is Lord of heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing!
