In the midst of all of the trouble and strife. The very things I post on. I can become disillusioned, depressed and disheartened. I needed something and found it in this video.
I give you Amazing Grace.
Lyrics to the original “Amazing Grace” by John Newton whose life was transformed from a former slave ship captain to a servant of Jesus Christ.
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.
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 we have already come. T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…and Grace will lead us 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.
When we’ve been here ten thousand years… bright shining as the sun. We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise… than when we first begun.
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.
