I saw the light,
I saw the light,
Oh I saw the light.

He lived in a crowded Jamaican infirmary;
Many were brought there to die.
Days of starvation, complete deprivation,
And illness had taken his sight.

But a doctor came to the village there
And treated him with the finest care,
Said that time would tell.

The doctor went to bed that night
And when he awoke in the morning light
The man could not be found
He was singing from a hill,
"Oh I can see!"

I saw the light,
I saw the light,
Oh I saw the light.

And he sang Amazing Grace to show
A loving God for all to know
With love and faith and grace
Oh I can see!

We met and my eyes could not hide how I
Felt when I looked at him tattered and torn,

But he captured me with a smile that seems
So out of place from the pain he'd endured.
And he told me of a sacrifice
That had given him eternal life;
He was not alone!

He spoke about a greater plan,
And I began to understand:
My life was not my own!
And I am here to say...

I saw the light,
I saw the light,
Oh I saw the light.

And I sang Amazing Grace to show
A loving God for all to know
With love and faith and grace
Oh I can see!

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me oh!
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.
