Quote of the Day: In honor of AMAZING GRACE opening on Broadway, here are some of the lyrics to the iconic song...
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.
See you bright and early tomorrow, BroadwayWorld!
