I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn’t let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night

No more in darkness no more in night
(And) now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I saw the light I saw the light
No more in darkness no more in night
(And) now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Verse 3
I was a fool to wander and stray
Straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Chorus
I saw the light I saw the light
No more in darkness no more in night
(And) now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father Who Art In Heaven,

Hallowed Be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom Come.

Thy Will Be Done

On Earth As It Is In Heaven.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread,

And Forgive Us Our Trespasses,

As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us,

And Lead Us Not Into Temptation,

But Deliver Us From Evil.

For Thine Is The Kingdom,

And The Power, And The Glory,

For Ever And Ever

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear

And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed

Chorus

My chains are gone I’ve been set free

My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love amazing grace

Verse 3

The Lord has promised good to me

His word my hope secures

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures

Chorus

My chains are gone I’ve been set free

My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love amazing grace  

Verse 4

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow

The sun forbear to shine

But God who called me here below

Will be forever mine

Will be forever mine

You are forever mine
