Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace!

How sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch 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.

Take a walk "Down by the Riverside" with the song on the next page.
