   G           C             G
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
     G    G         C       G
I once was lost, but now am found,
           D   G
Was blind but now I see.

      G              C           G
Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
      G     G          C      G
How precious did that Grace appear,
            D         G
The hour I first believed.

    G       C                G  
My chains are gone, Ive been set free,
             C           G  
My God, my Savior has ransomed me.
    G     C          G  
And like a flood His mercy reigns,
           Am7     D7        G
Unending love,     Amazing Grace.

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

C      G              C           G
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine.
    G       G        C     G
But God who called me here below,
          D      G
Will be forever mine,
          D      G
Will be forever mine,
            D    G
You are forever mine

  4. down, down-up, down-up works for a strumming partern

  5. Umm thanks but where’s the strumming pattern..?

  9. TRU3 B3L13V3R

    I love this song; it is a great one for beginners to practice. The chords are spot on and it sounds amazing (the puns). I also wanna say that just Chris Tomlin is awesome.

  10. 0 or -5 are the easiest transpositions

  12. -2 is the easiest, but it’s still a little by hard (depending on your skill level)
