Amazing Grace

Sung by Dale Grubaugh. JOHN NEWTON, 1725 TO 1807. EARLY AMERICAN MELODY. AMAZING GRACE. C.M.

FIRST VERSE:

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.

SECOND VERSE:

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed!

THIRD VERSE:

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come;

’Tis grace hath bro’t me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.

FOURTH VERSE:

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come;

’Tis grace hath bro’t me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.

Amen.

About the music...

(SMYRNA BAPTIST CHURCH NEAR OZARK, MISSOURI) A few weeks ago, State of the Ozarks recorded Elias Tucker (Pastor Dale Grubaugh) singing as his wife Dannette played the piano.

Few sounds evoke memories of tradition, church, fellowship and the holiday season more than a strong voice and unadorned but beautiful piano playing.

As the music sounded out in the century-old church of rural Parch Corn Holler, a little bit of Ozark history was preserved.
