I'm The Wretch the Song Refers To

I was looking through a magazine a while ago and I saw this shirt and! That is so true! When you really stop and think about it...yea we are the wretches the song refers to. I was seriously contemplating getting this shirt but then I figured I shouldn't because I don't think a lot if people would understand what its talking about. But I like it just the same. So I thought I would share it with y'all, and give you something to think about. :)

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.

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.

WORDS: John Newton 1779, alt.; st. 5, anonymous

I love this! I am contemplating to purchase it or not... Perhaps it would strike up great conversation to those who don't get it...
