Amazing Grace. 1 Cor. 15. 10; Eph. 2. 1-8; Zech. 3. 2
H. Paice, 1798 L.M.
Ah! but for free and sovereign grace,
I still had lived estranged from God,
Till hell had proved the destined place
Of my deserved but dread abode.
But O, amazed, I see the hand
That stopped me in my wild career;
A miracle of grace I stand;
The Lord has taught my heart to fear.
To fear his name, to trust his grace,
To learn his will be my employ;
Till I shall see him face to face,
Himself my heaven, himself my joy.
