Arlo Guthrie — Amazing Grace lyrics

Words by John Newton
Arranged and adapted by Arlo Guthrie

Chorus:
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
Oh how precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Chorus

Shall I be wafted to the skies
On flowery beds of ease
While others strive to win the prize
And sail on bloody seas

Chorus
