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, we have already come. ‘Twas grace that brought us safe thus far and grace will lead us 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’ve first begun. David Lee Sloss was 66 years old and passed away in Ypsilanti, Michigan on November 30, 2017.
