Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me

Walk around that corner lady, seesaw your own now
Allemande the corner, going to weave the ring
How precious did that Grace appear
Swing the girl and promenade now
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, 1/2 around you go
Down the middle, square thru go 4
Go all the way & then do the right & left thru my friend
Veer to the left and the couples circulate
Chain down the line, square thru and go 3/4 round you know
Swing that corner, promenade now
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun

Walk around that corner lady, seesaw your own now
Allemande the corner, going to weave the ring
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Swing the girl and promenade now
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

Amazing Grace
 
 

Amazing grace! 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 hath 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.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The world shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun refuse to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.

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'd first begun.

Lyrics by John Newton; last verse by unknown author.
Recorded by Mahalia Jackson; many others.
