Amazing Grace
Traditional

[
Credits for Elvis Presley version:
    Text & music by William J. Gaither, arr. Elvis Presley
]

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

[This verse is omitted from the Elvis Presley version of the song:]

'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed

[This verse is omitted from the Elvis Presley version of the song:]

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Twas Grace that brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home

When we've been there 10,000 years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun

[Extra verse present in Elvis Presley version of the song:]

Too many ages false and spent
I have already hung
This face and flock He saved us by
His endless grace will leave me whole

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
