Amazing Grace

graceIn a time of loss or struggle, the words of the wonderful hymn Amazing Grace can truly be a source of comfort.

We are so blessed to have God’s grace as this song by John Newton, so clearly explains.

  • Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
  • That saved a wrench like me.
  • I once was lost but now am found,
  • Was blind, but now I see.
  • T’was 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 that 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.
  • Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
  • And mortal life shall cease.
  • I shall possess within the veil,
  • A life of joy and peace.
  • When we’ve been there ten thousand years
  • Bright shining like the sun.
  • We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
  • Than when we’ve first begun.

Amen and Amen!  Wow, what an amazing comfort!  I so needed these words this week!!

Lord, may these words and your Grace be a source of love and comfort for those suffering and dealing with loss today!  Amen.
