amazing grace
Dieses Volkslied aus den USA gehört wohl zu den bekanntesten Melodien auf der Erde. Obwohl ich Agnostiker bin, gefällt mir die letzte Strophe besonders gut.

amazing grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sounds,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I 'm found,
Was blind, but now I see.

't was grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Thro 's many dangers toils and snares,
I have already come;
'tis grace hath bro't me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer 's ear.
It soothes his sorrows, heals the wounds,
And drives away his fear.

Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No, there 's a cross for ev'ry one
And there 's a cross for me.
