FAITH'S REVIEW AND EXPECTATION




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 that 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.


Yes, when this heart and flesh shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil
A life of joy and peace.


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.


The world shall soon
dissolve like snow,
The sun refuse to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.


Praise God, praise God,
Praise God, praise God,
Praise God, praise God, praise God,
Praise God, praise God,
Praise God, praise God,
Praise God, praise God, praise God.


The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.


And when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.


---Alternative verses---


Through many dangers, toils and snares 
I have already come; 
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, 
And grace will lead me home. 


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.


The world shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.
