Verse 1:

 

So undeserving of your mercy, in my heart, committed murder & perjury, but you still bless me instead of curse me  

thats why I serve thee, thought you had no reason to listen to a sinner like me, but you still heard me, and gave me open heart surgery

 

Buried the old man, you help me change my way & gave me a new birthday, now early & on the first day 

Of the week I put your first, even when i’m feeling like dirt on Thursday, you still nurture me, never hurting me, but you care for me, and you’re there for me, and you share with me

 

My soul was tossed, I was so lost, sinning freely like it was no cost 

but you didn’t go off, you still held off, and kept hell off

 

I don’t deserve this life you have given me, I don’t deserve the wife you have given me, 

but your life you have given me, the Christ who lives in me, the risen King 

 

And now lead your people? And reach for people? And feed your people? I need your people

Now I grieve for people, who need the teacher, you made me a preacher

 

Could’ve used anybody, like another man, Your grace is something I’ll  probably never understand

Bounce me  back like a rubber band, took me up 5 floors like bruh man, trust man

 

Sometimes I don’t know I got here, and today if it stopped here 

And if you never did another thing for me I could sing of amazing grace, because you saved my face

 

 

 

Chorus:

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see

 

 

 

Verse 2:

 

Jesus, you gave your life to save my life, 

When the devil wanted to turn my days to night, you raised the light, made it right, 

 

I’m thankful Christ, when I should’ve lost my mind you came right on time to calm me down, and raise my life

 

Chance after chance you have given me, I don’t deserve the love you have given me

But you give to me grace in the mid term

 

Refuse to take credit, for what I didn’t earn, Jesus said it, and I did learn

Now it’s my turn to give back to the God who’s been good to me (so good to me)

 

Glory hallelujah, praise God

Am what I am, by the grace of God

 

Don’t take grace for granted, I ain’t playing God, I’m praying to God for me to stay with God by the grace of God, amazing God, don’t play with God, because we’ve all got to face the God who defied the odds, When the chips were stacked up against us 

 

And if God be for us, who can be against us?

I know this much, He’s brought me too far for me to now distrust 

 

Or mistrust, so I trust, His grace, god  lead me home

I seek His face to get in the zone, amazing grace forever be my song 

 

Citizen of heaven, that forever be my home, Long as Jesus with me, I’ll never be alone 

 

Now victory belongs, to us, bet they were surprised on that morn like stoned,

When they rolled away the stone and saw that he was gone

 

 

 

Chorus 

 

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound  that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound  that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see

 

 

 

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free, my God my savior has ransomed me, and like a flood, His mercy reigns, unending love, amazing grace 

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free, my God my savior has ransomed me, and like a flood, His mercy reigns, unending love, amazing grace
