Amazing grace How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me

     G                G/B     C            G                           D2sus      G

I once was lost but   now I’m found, was blind but   now     I see

     G                                    G6sus     G                                      D2sus

 ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved

           G        G/B           C          G                    D2sus      G         Gsus G

How precious did that grace appear the hour I   first     believed


        G/B            C2                          G/B                        C2                             G/B

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free   My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy reigns  Unending  love           Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures

He will my shield and portion be as long as     life       endures

CHORUS  (2x)


G                                      C             G                                  D2sus

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, the sun forbear to shine

        G             G/B          C       G                     D2sus         G  Gsus G

But God who called me here below will be forever            mine

                  D2sus           G    Gsus G                         D2sus        G

Will be for    ever           mine,                  You are for   ever        mine
