“Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone”
Arranged by Chris Tomlin
Soloist: Will Powell
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.
My chains are gone! I’ve been set free!
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood, His mercy reigns.
Unending love, amazing grace!
The Lord has promised good to me. His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, the sun forbear to shine
But God who called me here below will be forever mine.

“Toccata on Amazing Grace”
Arranged by C. Pardini
Organist: Robert Gardner
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.
The flowers in the sanctuary today
were donated by Bill & Sandra Mezger
in thanksgiving of God’s blessing of spring.
