31 Songs for Worship day 2.

First I just have to say that the song I’ve picked for tonight wasn’t even in my list. I do like the song, I just never thought to put it in there. My song for tonight is Amazing Grace, the Il Divo version.

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
‘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…
When we’ve been there ten thousand years, Bright, shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we 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

We rarely sing this song in regular worship, (this version, anyway.) I’ve sang the updated version in church many times but the only time we sang the regular version was 2 years ago after the Umpqua Community College shooting. I think in light of what happened this morning in Vegas, we all need to take time to consider God’s amazing grace and love. We also need to take time to consider our purpose on the earth, (both as Christians, and personally.) I’m praying for everyone involved in the events of last night and early this morning, and that’s all I’ll say I want to keep this one short.
