Amazing Grace Printed Scores
This arrangement of the classic hymn makes use of open harmonies reminiscent of early american music. While initially plaintive in nature, it builds to a powerful conclusion.
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.
John Newton, 1748
