Amazing Grace: The Other Verses

8 Sep

Many people know the first verse of the great John Newton hymn Amazing Grace but fewer people know the other verses of the song. There are some great truths in these verses, so I wanted to share them with you today. As you meditate over these verses, I hope you will be encouraged.

’Twas 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,

I have already come;

’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me 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.

 

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,

And mortal life shall cease,

I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace.

 

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,

The sun forbear to shine;

But God, who called me here below, Will be forever mine.
