1. A - maz - ing grace, how sweet the sounds, that saved a - wretch like me.
2. 't was grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears re - lieved;
3. Thro's man - y dan - gers toils and snares, I have al - read - y come;
4. How sweet the name of Je - sus sounds in a be - liev - er's ear.
5. Must Je - sus bear the cross a - lone and all the world go free?

I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.
how pre - cious did that grace ap - pear the hour I first be - lieved.
'�s grace hath bro't me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.
It soothes his sor - rows, heals the wounds, and drives a - way his fear.
No, there's a cross for ev' - ry one and there's a cross for me.

Der Text Amazing Grace verdankt seine Entstehung einem Schlüsselerlebnis seines Autors John Newton, der Kapitän eines
Sklavenschiffs war. Nachdem er am 10. Mai 1748 in schwere Seenot geraten und nach Anrufung des Erbarmens Gottes
gerettet worden war, behandelte er zunächst die Sklaven menschlicher. Nach einigen Jahren gab er seinen Beruf sogar ganz
auf, wurde stattdessen Geistlicher und trat gemeinsam mit William Wilberforce für die Bekämpfung der Sklaverei ein.
