Friday Freebie: Amazing Grace

amazing grace advanced version

One of my favorite hymns is Amazing Grace. I thought I would share mostly all free stuff today,
staying with the theme of the song. “Amazing Grace’ is a Christian hymn which is written by an English poet named John Newton in 1779.

"God's Amazing Grace" (feat. Rev. Timothy Flemming)

Lyrics to Amazing Grace

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 hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds
And drives away his fear

Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No, there's a cross for ev'ryone
And there's a cross for me

Amazing Grace: Who We Are Instead 2003
 
D                                G  Gsus4 G
I grew this heart into a drifter
                                 D  Dsus2 D
I never felt the roots I bare
                                        C9
I sold my sight, oh brother, sister
                                         G
For a mountain of fool's gold, it's gone
                                         D  Dsus2  D
Only God knows, God knows where


D                                     G  Gsus4 G
My soul was restless for redemption
                                            D   Dsus2   D
My feet were lookin' for a place to stand
                          C9
Well I ain't got no life
                                         G
And you know I ain't got no money
                                      D      Dsus2   D
Just the faith of an empty hand  -    empty hand


C9        G                      D
Amazing Grace I feel you coming up slowly now
C9         G                D
Like the sun is risin', heat on my face
C9       G                       D
Oh love that keeps on shinin', don't let the shadow come
C9                              D
Ya know I gotta feel your healin' rays


Interlude: G    D       C9      G       D


D                                 G       Gsus4   G
I hitched a ride, I was a beggar
                              D       Dsus2   D
I had murder on my hands
                                           C9
I needed water to rinse these stains
                                              G
But only blood could remove what's spillin'
                             D       Dsus2   D
And pardon me the blame


C9          G                     D
Amazing Grace I feel you coming up slowly now
C9         G                D
Like the sun is risin', heat on my face
C9               G                       D
Oh love that keeps on shinin', don't let the shadow come
C9                   (G)                   D
Ya know I gotta feel your healin' rays
