Subject: Lyr Req: When I Sing Amazing Grace
From: GUEST,Marion
Date: 12 Nov 08 - 09:24 AM

Hi folks. I am looking for lyrics to this song... I'm not sure if the title is accurate. The verses are about civil rights, and the chorus is:

When I sing Amazing Grace
Your face is all I see
I hope some day that kind of grace
Will find its way to me.

Big Mick sang it at the FSGW getaway.

Thanks, Marion

So why wouldn't you just PM Big Mick. I know the guy, he probably wouldn't mind helping out at all. Sorry about the caps but this is a cut and paste of a songsheet arrangement.

AMAZING GRACE/THAT KIND OF GRACE
(Anne Hills and David Roth)

AMAZING GRACE, 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

TWAS GRACE THAT TAUGHT, MY SOUL TO FEAR, AND GRACE THAT FEAR RELIEVED
HOW PRECIOUS WAS THAT BLESSED HOUR WHEN GRACE I FIRST RECEIVED

AmSUNDAY MORNING, GBIRMINGHAM, AmQUIET IN THE EmCHURCH
AmBOMBS WERE PLANTED, GHOUSE OF GOD, AmCHILDREN'S BLOOD EmON AmCROSS
CAND YOUR DAUGHTER, GSHE WAS ONE, AmANGEL WITHOUT EmWINGS
AmHOW COULD ANYGONE FORGIVE AmTHOSE WHO DO EmSUCH AmTHINGS.

AND CWHEN I SING "AAmMAZING CGRACE", YOUR FACE IS ALL I SGEEmE
I AmHOPE ONE EmDAY THAT AmKIND OF EmGRACE WILL AmFIND IT'S GWAY THROUGH AmME

FRIDAY EVENING IN MOBILE, KLANSMAN KILLING TIME
SAW YOUNG MICHAEL WALKING BY, HE WILL DO JUST FINE.
QUIET STUDENT, MOTHER'S BEST, PLEADING FOR HIS LIFE.
STRUNG HIM UP TO MAKE A POINT SHARPER THAN A KNIFE
BEULAH MAY, HIS MOTHER, STOOD, PEOPLE ALL AROUND
IN THE COURTROOM LISTENING AS THE TRUTH WAS FOUND
FROM HER MOUTH, NO CURSES FELL, NO PROFANITY
I WILL DO TO OTHERS WHAT I'D HAVE THEM DO TO ME

AND WHEN I SING "AMAZING GRACE" ……

THURSDAY AFTERNOON IN THE CAR, TURN THE RADIO ON
VERDICT FROM LOS ANGELES, OH WHAT HAVE WE DONE?
IMAGES OF VIOLENCE, YELLOW, BLACK AND WHITE
52 DEAD, MILLIONS LOST, WHO COULD WIN THIS FIGHT?
ON THE SCREEN A FACE OF TEARS TREMBLING THROUGH AND THROUGH
A FACE WE'D SEEN SO MANY TIMES WRITTEN IN THE NEWS
I COULD BARELY HEAR HIS WORDS, FULL OF FEAR AND DOUBT.
PEOPLE WE CAN'T LIVE LIKE THIS, WE'VE GOT TO WORK THINGS OUT

AND WHEN I SING "AMAZING GRACE" ……..

AMAZING GRACE, 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

Genie video'ed the performance. I don't have a problem with her sharing it with you to get the basic structure of the song.

Mick

Thanks for the quick reponse, Mick, and having guitar chords is very helpful too. I'd like to do this at song circle this week. And thanks for the video suggestion, but I remember the melody.

Cheers, Marion

PS. My philosophy is that private messages are for, well, private messages. Folkish song lyrics are something that other Mudcatters might be looking for, or might be pleased to discover...

CDBaby tune link

For future reference, this link samples both the chorus and verse sections.

Mick, the lyrics Joe posted have an error in the refrain. As you posted above .... "will find it's way through me.".... not.. "to me."

Could the threads perhaps be combined at some point so all the information is together ?

I did this song yesterday as the opening for the Diocesan Christian Formation Commission.... it was powerfully recieved. And I actually played my guitar without any major mess ups....

thanks
