Amazing Grace; how sweet the sound.
But when a wretch, like me
is faced with someone needing grace,
I’m blind and cannot see.
The evidence of God with us
is how we treat another.
And without Grace we don’t forgive
but tend to judge each other.
Grace forgives the things we do,
forgives the things we don’t.
Grace puts up with all our faults
when those around us won’t.
Grace is what we get from God.
Grace is what we give.
Grace is not a mealtime prayer,
it should be how we live.
Amazing Grace; how sweet the sound
when it helps other’s see
God’s love and mercy exercised
in Christian charity.
