Music Monday for My Mom: Amazing Grace by Leann Rimes

My mom has been moved from intensive care to the hospice floor of Somerset Medical Center and seems to be nearing the end of her almost 85-year-old life (though apparently this morning she has rallied and was up eating breakfast?!). I spent the day with her in the ICU yesterday, holding her hand while she talked to Jesus and the angels. Just before I headed home, my mom suddenly launched into song... even in her confusion, she remembers her scriptures and she knew all the words to Amazing Grace. So this one's for you, Mom... I love you.



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
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me 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.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than 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.
