12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
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 heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed.
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.
Listen to Paul Buskirk play "Amazing Grace" (mp3)
