Do People Get Amazing Grace Who Sing?


Do people get amazing grace who sing?
Is that old tune just something trite?
If Christ is true it changes everything.

Young Mark retreats stark naked in the night.
What he escaped to tell he soon would write.
Do people get amazing grace who sing?

Two Marys in astonishment and fright:
“Last night we saw Joe lay him here alright.
If Christ is true it changes everything.”

They leave unwrapped the spices that they bring.
“He’s gone ahead to Galilee tonight.”
Do people get amazing grace who sing?

Who walks the beach in early morning light?
“This lake of fish could not be made to bite.”
If Christ is true it changes everything.

Who is it sets the breakfast coals alight?
Our Maker's come and sets the world aright.
Do people get amazing grace who sing?
If Christ is true it changes everything.
