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 hath 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 Yes, 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 there ten thousand years ** Bright shining as the sun We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we first begun The earth shall soon dissolve like snow The sun forbear to shine But God, who called me here below Will be forever mine **This verse did not form part of the original version of "Amazing Grace". It seems to have first appeared in Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin". ******************** As recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY, 15th March 1971: Amazing grace, oh, how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost, but now I'm found Was blind, but now I see 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, when we first begun (Through many dangers, toils and snares) (I have already come) ('Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far) (And grace will lead me home) Amazing grace, oh, how sweet the sound To save a wretch like me Oh, I once was lost, oh, but now I'm found Was blind, but now I see Was blind, but now I see (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2018) ***** WAARHEEN WAARVOOR (Trad. - Arrgt J. Johns / J. Newton / Karel H. Hille) Nana Mouskouri Waarheen leid de weg die wij moeten gaan Waarvoor zijn wij op aard Wie weet wat er is achter ster en maan Hoe lang duurt nog de nacht Waar ligt het land waar wij mogen zijn En wat is de taak die ons wacht Waar is de geest die met ons leeft Die ons de vrede geeft Waar staat de poort die ons binnen laat En die ons ook beschermt Hoeveel offers werden er gebracht En toch nog blijft het nacht Waarheen leid de weg die wij moeten gaan Waarvoor zijn wij op aard Wie weet wat er is achter ster en maan Hoe lang duurt nog de nacht ***** AIMER QUAND MÊME (Trad. - Arrgt J. Johns / J. Newton / P. Delanoë / C. Lemesle) Nana Mouskouri Aimer quand même, aimer toujours Malgré les peines d'amour Malgré la haine, malgré le temps Aimer toujours autant Aimer l'hiver, aimer le feu Aimer le vert de tes yeux Les pluies du nord, les nuits du sud Aimer la solitude Aimer comme l'étoile des jours heureux Comme un rival de Dieu Comme un soldat de l'univers Qui va vers la lumière Aimer quand même, aimer toujours Malgré les peines d'amour Malgré la haine, malgré le temps Aimer toujours autant
