“..that saved a wretch like me…”

If I could have an anthem to be the soundtrack of my life, it would be Amazing Grace. Written by Reverend John Newton, the lyrics for the song “Amazing Grace” was used to illustrate a sermon  on New Year’s Day of 1773.
“Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see
T’was 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
We have already come.
T’was grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace will lead us home,
And grace will lead us home
Amazing grace, Howe Sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
T’was blind but now I see
Was blind, but now I see.”
What a sweet sound these words can be to the ears of one poor wretch who has been found by our ever-loving and gracious, Savior and Lord.  John Newton knew that sweet salvation and wrote these words that have been sung and heard by so many millions of people since he penned those words.
Do you know this sweet salvation in your soul?  If you do not, you can know him today by believing in the one for whom this grace describes, Jesus Christ [John 3:14-17].
Place your trust in Him today; believe and find your new life in Christ Jesus.

“One of the most beautiful paradoxes of god’s wisdom is sovereign grace. The same grace that is unmerited is also unstoppable.” ~ John Newton
