Amazing Grace

John Newton’s hymn Amazing Grace is very popular and is found in almost every hymnal that is published.  But did you know that most of them don’t publish all of the song?  Since Newton wrote it many verses have been added by others.  Here are thirteen verses that I found on gospelweb.net.

1.
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.
2.
In evil long I took delight
Un-awed by shame or fear;
‘Til a new object met my sight
And stopped my wild career.
3.
I saw One hanging on a tree,
In agonies and blood
Who fixed His languid eyes on me
As near His cross I stood.
4.
Sure, never ‘til my latest breath
Can I forget that look.
It seemed to charge me with His death
Though not a word He spoke.
5.
My conscience owned and felt the guilt,
And plunged me in despair;
I saw my sins His blood had shed,
And helped to nail Him there.
6.
Alas, I knew not what I did,
But all my tears were vain;
Where could my trembling soul be hid,
For I the Lord had slain.
7.
A second look he gave which said,
“I freely all forgive!
“This blood is for thy ransom paid,
“I die that thou mayest live.”
8.
Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
9.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come.
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home!
10.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
11.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil
A life of joy and peace.
12.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine,
But God who called me here below
Shall be forever mine!
13.
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 first begun!

  1. That’s very cool. I never knew there were so many verses. There were six I had never heard before.

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
