"So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God." (Rom.10:17 ) 
The following text is a breakdown of the verses of the hymn, linked to corresponding Bible verses (King James Version). It is not condensed and is rather lengthy. It is our intention to keep adding verses and other pertinent information over time. We hope that, through the word of God, John Newton's devotional hymn will be a blessing to you...
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
The Lord has Promised Good to Me . . . His Word My Hope Secures
He Will My Shield And Portion Be As Long As Life Endures
Through Many Dangers, Toils and Snares I Have Already Come
'Tis Grace That 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 Then When We'd First Begun

Home . . . The Melody . . . The Story of Amazing Grace . . . More Newton and Links
