John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 1, hymn 41 (which only has six verses), the others were added later, not necessarily by Newton
|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.
2. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
4. The Lord has promised good to me,
5. Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
7. When we've been there* ten thousand years
|8. How long, dear Saviour, oh how long|
Have I on earth to stay?
Roll on, roll on, ye wheels of time
And bring that joyful day.
9. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
10. Must Jesus bear the cross alone
11. We lay our garments by
12. Amazing grace has set me free
13. The world shall soon to ruin go
14. Shall I be wafting to the sky,
|3. Tro iomadh cunnart's trioblaid chruaidh|
Thug E gu sàbhailt mi.
An gràs a shaor bhon bhàs le buaidh
Chan fhàg's cha trèig gu sìor.
4. San dachaigh bhuan gun uair gun tìm,
