Amazing Grace Free Lyrics  (3/4 Time Signature)

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.



‘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 has brought me safe thus far,

  And grace will lead me home.



When we’ve been there ten thousand years,

  Bright shining as the sun.

  We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise

  Than when we’d first begun.


You can watch this video lesson of me explaining how to use a simple
piano accompaniment pattern on Amazing Grace
