How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun...
