HE LOOKED BEYOND MY FAULT


AMAZING GRACE  SHALL ALWAYS  BE

MY SONG OF PRAISE

FOR  IT WAS GRACE

THAT BROUGHT  MY LIBERTY

I DO NOT KNOW  JUST  WHY

HE CAME  TO LOVE ME SO

HE LOOKED  BEYOND  MY FAULT

AND SAW  MY  NEED .


REFRAIN :

I SHALL  FOREVER

LIFT  MINE EYES  TO CALVARY

TO VIEW  THE CROSS

WHERE JESUS  DIED  FOR ME

HOW MARVELOUS  THE GRACE 

THAT CAUGHT  MY FALLING SOUL

HE LOOKED  BEYOND  MY FAULT

AND SAW MY NEED .

REPEAT REFRAIN :

I needed the words to this song because I have to sing it at Watch night
at our church.  Happy New Year as we look forward to 2011.

I know this is late but this is good all the time 2 verse:

AND FOR TODAY, I HUMBLY SEEK THY FAVOR LORD
AND ASK THAT THOU, SHOULD SMILE ON THINGS I DO
THEN SOME SHIFTING SANDS OF DOUBT ALL AROUND ME
BUT THEY SHALL NOT TAKE MY EYES FROM YOUALL AROUND ME

These are the verses that I found in an old hymn book that I have, God Bless!

He Looked Beyond My Faults

Verse: 1
Amazing grace shall always be my song of praise,
for it was grace that bought my liberty,
I do not know just why he came to love me so,
he looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

Chorus:
I shall forever lift mine eyes to Calvary
to view the cross where Jesus died for me,
how marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul,
he looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

Verse: 2
Redeeming blood my Savior shed for me one day,
to restore me back to where I used to be,
he became my sin so I could be his righteousness,
when he looked beyond my fault and saw my need.

Here's another additional verse I learned in Sept 2010. I needed an old spiritual song to penetrate & this song
Sufficed : 3rd verse :
Amazing Grace, For All My Days , I'll Sing Of It.
For By His Grace , He Set My Poor Heart Free.
And All My Days , I'll Never Cease To Sing His Praise.
He Looked Beyond My Faults  & Saw My Needs.

After performing this countless times, one of my singing partners
confessed they had always thought the words were
  "He looked beyond my faults and saw my knees"
I have always remembered this because it made just as much sense.
It is indeed Amazing Grace to to be forgiven of our faults by simply kneeling before God and accepting the supreme sacrifice of Jesus and His Blood.

May the Lord continue to Bless us all in this coming year of 2013

My grandfather (Papaw) sings this song, and he has other verses. It actually starts different. Not sure where he got them but it's great. Any ideas?

My life, my soul, so troubled and filled with need...

Here's another verse that I want to share:

"If not for grace my soul would be a drifting ship,
With no safe harbor from the angry waves;
O but Calvary's cross shines brightly through the darkest storm,
And just in time, His mercies rescued me."

I am so blessed by this song. Praise God for His marvelous plan of salvation.

My life, my soul, so troubled and filled with needs. I bore the lead not knowing I'd be free. If I would seek His face, that man from Galilee. With open arms, He vowed He'd pardon me.
And when I think, of how I closed my heart to Him. Those wasted years now knowing of His love. How sweet to know and learn of His amazing love. And free to all who'd call His name and seek His face.

Praise God, I remember this song from my childhood.Our musician quoted the first line on Sunday,and I"ve been singing it allday.Such precious memories.

I am listening to and instrumental version of  this song (rain in the background of the song) and wanted to see the lyrics.,  Each of those posted here just help me praise my LORD even more.,  Just as wonderful as HIS love to accept us just as we are is HIS love that will NOT let us go.  There are too many times I have strayed from HIM and a couple of times I strayed so far I could hear HIM say.....THAT IS FAR ENOUGH!  I never want to leave HIS side again. 

Yet  I have seen so many sing Amazing Grace  that have no clue as to what HIS grace really is because they do not really know the LORD.  I pray that they do find that HIS grace is AMAZING!

Thank you all so much for these lyrics to this song.  I heard it for the very first tme last week at a funeral. It was so moved by the spirit as a mature lovely black woman of God sang this georgous  hymn.  I didn't know the name so I search and found you all!.....thanks so much....
Bless you all.

A friend of mine, Russ Cropley, included another verse when he taped it for family and friends:
"I am amazed that God His Son not sparing
Gave Him to die to free my soul from sin.
And yet, I know that by His death I am set free.
He looked beyond my fault and saw my need."

And then one day we we shall meet in glory
Oh What a Day of Joy that will be
He will say child come sit down here beside me.
I tell you why and I will tell you how.
