Amazing Grace, how Sweet the Sound

Post  Fenny West on Mon 17 Sep 2007, 9:27 am

Thank you for being here.
Amazing Grace Lyrics
"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.



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.




The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.


When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.



"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.

(end)

John Newton

Dear Fenny:

You are awesome, I love this song, I always play this and few of others on loop all day, even in my office. The whole song is so true specially I like the 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.

I will send you one of my favorite songs, I think you may have heard it "Give me Jesus". I simply love it.

God bless you and your family.

He Is Awesome

Post  Fenny West on Mon 17 Sep 2007, 10:01 am

Our God is an awesome God, who guides us by His Spirit to go where He please and do what brings Him glory and honour. I thought of blessing one of my readers but on a second thought I realised how great and enduring that song is and how it might bless others.

I am glad it has made your day.

May the Lord cause His face to shine on you this day. May He replay the sweet sound of His Good, Amazing, Great Grace.

May He remind you and me where He saw us and found us blind; and how in His mercy He gave us back our sight gave us His robe of righteousness in place of filthy rags of self-righteousnessand invited us to His banquetting table laden with a sumptuous spread.

Dear Fenny:

Thank you for your prayer, yes I love this song and how awesome our God is that He sent His only begotten Son so that He save us from eternal death and bring us back into the presence of Heavenly Father.

I see so many people everyday (non-Christians) going through hard religious rituals and practices, and I thank God that He did not make me blind like them and He chose me to be His sheep.

Indeed we are lucky and we must value the precious gift of Jesus Christ from Heavenly Father.

I always wonder, that when these people will die, who follow these strict religious rituals and even give up their lives, thinking of doing a duty to God, how sorry they would feel. They would be begging like the rich man in the story of Lazarus the beggar, to go back and undo everything.

God bless you and your family

It Is All By Grace

Post  Fenny West on Mon 17 Sep 2007, 10:56 am

Waqar

We thank God for His unsearchable riches bestowed on us, not because we merit it or by our luck, it is His unmerited favor. Everyone has their own time although it is within our means to turn our backs on God even when He is tugging the strings of our heart.

I thank God for the day I said, 'Yes, Lord.!' Before then I thought I was Ok, just not a religious fanatic. When He opened my eyes to see that I may have been sincere but sincerely wrong, I had to surrender my life. He came in and cleared the gabbage of 'religiousity', replacing it with a relationship with Him; 'Churchianity' was replaced with true Christianity.

Glory be to God!
