“Amazing Grace” – performed by Elvis Presley
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 has 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
Yet, 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’ve first begun
One of the very mellow songs that Elvis Presley had performed is the song “Amazing Grace” which was written by John Newton and Tyler Emmitt Perry. The lyrics of the song are so meaningful. The piece not only talks about one’s grace in life but also in death.
There are numerous good lines in the song that can easily be translated into lines for funeral poems. The song will be perfect for the funeral and memorial services of those who were very devout Christians because it talks about the faith that people have in God which opened their eyes to reality and this is what brought them to who they were before they were taken to heaven.
The song tells you that if you are faithful, you will be favored by the Lord by the time you need His help. The line says, “Grace will lead me home”, and this just means that the death of your family member is just a journey in life with God. Many people agree with the lyrics and this is such a meaningful song to use.
