Amazing Grace Made Me Cry


To church, past week I hadn't been
on account of the shape I'm in
I sat among the congregation
In holy honor and obligation
But I had an embarassing situation
When a certain hymn was sung
As the simple words left my tongue
'Amazing Grace' made me cry
I heard my voice begin to quiver
Felt the tears forming in my eye
And now I'm reflecting as to why
Maybe sad mixed with happy
Lately I've been a little sappy
Don't know why this simple hymn
Made me feel so close to him

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
