Amazing Grace lyrics

Amazing grace,how sweet the sound
That saved a wreach like me
I once was last but now am found
Was blind but now I see

I was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fear relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believe

Though many dangers toils and sound
I have already come
Tis grace have brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home
