AMAZING GRACE*
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me!
•The three stanzas sung to "common meter," are printed in many of the old hymn book, under the title of ''Warwick." The entire song, sung to the music herewith printed, was very popular in Texas. It was often sung enthusiastically at camp meetings when "mourners" were bemg called to the altar.
