Amazing Space

Amazing Space, beyond the clouds
goes to infinity
It contains all that can be found
It holds all that we see

T'was Space the fi-i-nal frontier
That made me first conceive
To be a cosmic pioneer
Take off from Earth and leave

To many planets, near and far
I have already been;
T'was Space that first showed me the stars
and Space that keeps me keen

The 'Verse has promised many things
Existence it secures.
It may be quarks or may be strings,
But matter still endures.

Yet when entropy does prevail,
The strong force will release,
An end will come to my time-scale,
Metabolic process cease

When we've been here ten billion years
And we have lost the sun.
I'll dance among the cosmic rays
My pure and free atoms

Amazing Space, beyond the clouds
goes to infinity
It contains all that can be found
It holds all that we see
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.

T'was 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 that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

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.

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've first begun.

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.
