Lyrics for ‘Amazing Grace’

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m 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
This grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright, shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see.

How Far I’ll Go – Easy Piano Sheet Music

“How Far I’ll Go” Lyrics

I’ve been staring at the edge of the water
‘Long as I can remember
Never really knowing whyI wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water
No matter how hard I try.

Every turn I take
Every trail I track
Every path I make
Every road leads back
To the place I know where I cannot go
Where I long to be.

See the line where the sky meets the sea?
It calls me
And no one knows
How far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
If I go, there’s just no telling how far I’ll go.

“Brahms’ Lullaby” also known as “Wiegenlied” Op. 49, No. 4 is a song for voice and piano originally published in 1868.

Lullaby and good night
With roses bedight
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed

Lullaby and good night
Thy mother’s delight
Bright angels beside
My darling abide

Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumber be blessed
Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and good night
With roses bedight
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed

Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumber be blessed
Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and good night
You’re thy mother’s delight
Bright angels beside
My darling abide

Lullaby and good night
In the sky stars are bright
‘Round your head
Flowers gay
Set you slumbers ’til day

Lullaby and good night
In the sky stars are bright
‘Round your head
Flowers gay
Set you slumbers ’til day

Close your eyes
Now and rest
May these hours
Be blessed

Close your eyes
Now and rest
May these hours
Be blessed

Amazing Grace | Lyrics, Piano Lesson, Sheet Music, Chords

Amazing Grace is a Christian hymn based on the personal experience of the writer, John Newton, whose text resounds with forgiveness and redemption through the mercy of God. Its first publication was in 1779 and frequently appears in hymnals around the world. In the English-speaking world, Amazing Grace is one of the most recognized songs, even  crossing over into the music recorded by secular music artists.

‘Amazing Grace’ Lyrics

1. 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.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures

5. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.

6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

7. 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.

Another Version

1. 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.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. 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.

Wabash Cannonball | Beginner Piano Sheet Music, Lyrics, Guitar Chords

The American folk song popularly known as Wabash Cannonball was originally written as The Great Rock Island Route on the earliest sheet music found for the song which was composed by J.A. Roff, to whom the song has been historically credited. The song is considered to be the oldest in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

Over the years, there have been many versions of the song, but they all retain more or less the same chorus. The most famous renditions were the ones from Roy Acuff, Bing Crosby, and Johnny Cash.

Lyrics for ‘Wabash Cannonball’

From the great Atlantic Ocean,
To the wide Pacific shore,
From sunny California,
To ice-bound Labrador.
She’s mighty tall and handsome,
She’s loved by one and all,
She’s the hobo’s ‘commodation,
The Wabash Cannonball.
Listen to the jingle,
The rumble and the roar,
As she glides along the woodlands,
Through hills and by the shore.
Hear the mighty rush of the engine,
Hear those lonesome hobos squall,
While trav’ling through the jungle,
On the Wabash Cannonball.

Our eastern states are dandy,
So the people always say,
From New York to St. Louis,
And Chicago by the way.
Through the hills of Minnesota,
Where the rippling waters fall,
No chances can be taken,
On the Wabash Cannonball.

Listen to the jingle,
The rumble and the roar,
As she glides along the woodlands,
Through hills and by the shore.
Hear the mighty rush of the engine,
Hear those lonesome hobos squall,
While trav’ling through the jungle,
On the Wabash Cannonball.

Now here’s to Daddy Claxton,
May his name forever stand,
He’ll always be remembered,
In the courts throughout the land.
His earthly race is over,
And the curtain round him falls,
Carryin’ him home to victory,
On the Wabash Cannonball.

Get it done by half past eight.
Stitch it up, and stitch it down,
And I’ll give you half a crown.
