Poem” The Wretched’s Choir”

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That wakes a wretch like me
I once was lost, myself now found
Was fooled, but now I see.

T’was to fight that taught our hearts of fear
Yet to fight do fears relieve
The wretched’s choir did then arise
The world to be the prize.

Max Lane, May, 2010, Melbourne, Australia

(Apologies and thank you to John Newton who wrote a beautiful hymn.)
