Amazing 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.
’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,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
Words by: John Newton, 1779.

John Newton 1725-1807
But now a righteousness from God, apart from law,
has been made known, to which the Law and the
Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes
through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.
There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by
his grace through the redemption that came by
Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of
atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to
demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance
he had left the sins committed beforehand
unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his justice at
the present time, so as to be just and the one who
justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
