John God bless you! That indeed is a lovely verse. It is truly wonderful to know that this world is not our home. Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us and has given us the Comforter, The Holy Spirit to be with us and help us through our trials , till we are taken to our everlasting abode. God bless!

My own favourite verse of this hymn says:

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace shall lead me home

I have found these few words a source of immense comfort throughout my Christian life. Jesus, by grace, gives us indeed his peace, in the midst of turmoil and despair.

My home is in heaven, I am a citizen of heaven, and I shall arrive there by the grace of God, no matter what befalls me.

I don't like singing amazing Grace any more, because tend to associate it with all the funerals I've attended. It just brings back to much sorrow. When I was a new Christian I was surprised to hear it sung at Church, because i thought it was a funeral song. Ah the ignorance of new believers!

I really like the history to the song and that it is to the same melody that slaves sung long ago. I wonder what the original words were to their song?

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Sorry, it's more like double-dutch, as we say in the UK. Need a decipher?

Can you not tell me where God did not forbid the singing of psalms in worship services? Or failing that, can you tell me where God authorized the singing of psalms at a marriage ceremony?

God wrote His own Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs. Why reject these in favor of the sinners lyrics?

Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Do sinners achieve the same purity in their lyrics?

Psalm 17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Psalm 56:10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
