I'm Lost And Then I'm Found Sing With Me "Amazing Grace" On Hubpages

Grace Walks In Every Day

Dedicated To The Ones We Love

I'm dedicating this Hubpages to a "Soul Sister" who found me just this week. Actually, she called me a "Birth Sister." We have different backgrounds, live in different parts of the country, practice different religions, traveled a different path in school, yet our strong connection to spiritual roots bind us together. Close in age, we share many passions about health, preserving the environment, listening to romantic music, playing with and encouraging our children and being guided by spirit.

That Song In My Head

After a number of dialogues on our mutual Hubpages, she posted a reply that started me singing. Yes, I seem to have these one-liners floating in my head that trips the wire to start singing and dancing old tunes that replay in my head.

Storytellersrus said, "I was lost, but now am found . . ." when reading my Healing and Peace through Yoga and Meditation Hub.

Her Words Are A Constant Reminder Of Source Energy

And, wouldn't you know it, I'm singing again and must go find a few back up tunes and musical selections to keep the music alive. This Hubpages gives tribute to one person, who represent many in this loving community, but also to the value of social networking. Because many people have still not jumped on the bandwagon, if they happen to read this blog, perhaps that will be the impetus for them to become involved in sharing their thoughts, their lives, their troubles, heartaches and joys. When I tell people that I blog, they hesitate and have a look of amazement on their faces. Although they have not ventured out and may be missing out in finding friends, one day they may read something that will change their minds.

LeAnn Rimes Sings Amazing Grace Acapella

Words of the Grace After Meals. We thank the Lord for all He has provided to nourish us each day.
Words of the Grace After Meals. We thank the Lord for all He has provided to nourish us each day.

When You Are At The Lowest Point In Your Life

When Elvis sings Amazing Grace you will hear the words, "Once I was lost and now I'm found." Thus, he speaks of returning to God. A troubled man throughout his life could sing this song from the heart and you can tell his truth. Other great soul brothers and sisters have sung this tune, on holidays, in church and choirs around the world most people know the tune and the words.

What Is The Personal Message You Receive?

Because someone actually spoke these words to me directly, I heard the words anew and wanted to find my own personal interpretation for them. In the fact that I am not a Christian or Catholic person and do not usually sing this song, what meaning could it have for me at this time in my life? I have written the lyrics to "Amazing Grace" below with this emphasis on the concept of feeling lost, alone and lonely, which means that we are separated from others, from community, from support, from a Holy spark. This song describes the feeling of being found, being in community, feeling supported and cared for by the Holy One Above, but also by family, friends and neighbors. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, our vision of self and how we feel internally plays a large part in the 'Saving Grace' this feeling of support for the Holy Soul we carry within this vessel we call our body.

Finding Grace

Many people say, "Grace" before and or after a meal. They give thanks that God has provided for their needs. Many times we realize the gifts we receive have not been earned by anything we have done. This is true Grace. Sometimes we say, "We are blessed." You may notice that whenever I can I find a time to say, "Blessings" because I believe this reminds me of all the small miracles and goodnesses in my life. This also sends a message outward to the other who may also be in times of need and can receive a blessing of 'hope.' The more blessings I can give, the lighter and more joyful the words will be.

Singing Your Heart Felt Song of Grace

The Three Selections Presented

I have chosen three versions of this song for your listening pleasure. Every time I listen to these words and the way these singers put them to the melody brings tears to my eyes.

Uncovering The Eyes

Ray Charles sings this song with compassion and knowing in all aspects physical, emotional and spiritual

When our awareness has been covered and hidden from us, either because God did not disclose some information at a time in our life's journey, or because of our own iniquities of stubbornness, resentment, grief, loneliness, hatred or other emotion or self realization that moment of 'awakening' will bring this light.

The words, "I was lost and now I am found" express it all. We are found, not only God, but our own inner personal spirit and reason for going on with our lives. This awareness can bring us out of a deep depression. This awareness can heal old wounds. This awareness can mend broken relationships and broken hearts. This awareness can change old non-productive habits.

The End Result

Finding something that was lost can bring that incredible sense of relief from anxiety and panic in the larger and smaller incidents in life. Like when you lose the house or car key, this means you cannot enter, you cannot leave, you cannot move forward. But, when you find that key you have the freedom to go places and do all the things that were thwarted before. You can see how important the "finding" can be in the wider and broader sense of 'finding self' opening to a new realization that unlocks an awareness that can help us move forward to unimaginable things we have never experienced before or wish to return to those times of greatness.

Ray Charles Sings Amazing Grace Soulful Song

The Lyrics To Amazing Grace How Sweet The Sound

Listen to the introduction to each of the voices we hear.

Listen to the humming and warbling of the throat sounds

Listen to the way we pronounce each word and tie it to the next.

Amazing grace

How sweet the sound

We begin in a place of darkness empty of light

We begin in a place of ugliness and despair

We begin in a place of name-calling and lack of self worth

That saved a wretch like me

once was lost, but now I'm found

The moment of grace our eyes are opened

The moment when God Creator of all things steps in

The moment when we hear the beauty of His voice within

Was blind, but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear

When we are unworthy we do not deserve gifts

When we do not feel under His wings we live in fear

When we utilize our place of fear to go higher we receive

And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear

In the hour of our greatest need we are quiet

In the hour of our darkest shadow we can see a spark of light

In the hour when we can't go any lower we are saved

The hour I first believed

My chains are gone

It is our belief in God that can set us free

It is our belief in His all encompassing power to heal hurts

It is our belief in His embrace and Love that enables us to change

I've been set free

My God, my Savior has ransomed me

We are reminded of the world's history of birth

We are reminded of Noah and the flood

We are reminded of God's eternal power of forgiveness

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love, Amazing grace

God has made a promise to us never to destroy the world

God asks us to make a promise to Him that we not destroy the world

God and Mankind must walk together in this journey called life

The Lord has promised good to me

His word my hope secures

If I carry His words and thoughts in my heart and soul

If I carry His deeds and promise to do them

If I am with Him then He is with me always

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures 

My chains are gone
 I've been set free

My God, my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love, Amazing grace

In the end our bodies will die

In the end my spirit will be in Heaven

In the end it is my good deeds on this earth that will renew

God's love 
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow

The sun forbear to shine

But God, Who called me here below

Will be forever mine

Will be forever mine

You are forever mine

I have always loved this song. I feel such a peace wash over me. A few months ago, my hubby had a phone call out of the blue. It was a long lost sister of his reaching out to her siblings that she had just found. She hadn't seen any of them in 38 years.

I feel blessed knowing many of the people here on HubPages, and am sad when they move one. You have a great list of hubbers here. Thanks for sharing this hub. I am looking forward to reading more.

In fact, just read about two twins separated at birth and how they found each other and compared notes. You are one of the foundation rocks of this Hubpages community. I'm SO happy for the 'EDIT' feature and learning from you. Blessings. Debby

Awww, I love this hub...and NOT because you mentioned me here, (but, thank you). Amazing Grace is a very special song for me. It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it, or even as I am writing this to you mentioning it.

Many years ago when we attended a (metaphysical) church in Michigan this song would be played or sung frequently. I've often told my children that I want this played at my funeral on bagpipes.

Thanks so much for the beautiful hub and examples of various vocalists. Many blessings, --Denise

Debby. Isn't it amazing, this grace that holds off until the exact right moment? I could not have read this on a more difficult day, in a more trying time. Your beautiful interpretative words had tears running down my cheeks.

One would think three artist's renditions were enough, but no! I cannot wait to hear my favorite of all the artists- the bagpipe. Even without the words, it is my favorite. Its layered sound pierces every cell and... I know the words. I don't need them sung to know what is being said. A bagpiper played this song as we released doves at Baba's funeral and... yep.

Now you have introduced me to a myriad of new hubbers I have not met. I am going to bookmark this and pledge this year to visit each of their hubs. Of course I know Frank and prasedio, Lapse, Minnetonka Twin, epigramman, General Howitzer and dear, dear Tom, among others. But I want to know all your friends, dear Birth sister.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an inspiration to us all.

Debby Bruck 4 years ago Author

Dear One - I wrote this in 2011. Isn't it funny how timing is everything. I did not call your attention to it, nor make mention anywhere, but waited patiently. Then, surprise, you popped over on an important day in your life to tell me about some oil nonsense going on in your area and wanting to post upon the environmental Hubpages. You know that all of my followers will now find out about the pipeline issue, and I will tweet it to the twittersphere.

So, hold on to your hat. Many people will gather round and take care of the earth.

Now you know that YOU were the inspiration for this entire blog. It began from "soul sister" which I never had in my life, and our connection. As a tribute to you it exploded into the many wonderful and dear authors, readers and supporters we all have within these pages.

Your note has pleased me so much that I chose the right song for you and so many have agreed. The addition of the bagpipes came from Denise, my NC friend, in her comments and I knew it had to be here, too.

I'm glad this brightened your day and that I have introduced you to many more beautiful people.

Good afternoon Debby and this is a return to one of my favorite hub presentations by anyone (ever) at the Hub during my time here.

A little trivia for you: I first heard Amazing Grace in a western film probably around 1972 called Culpepper Cattle Co. and in the scene after a savage gunfight the pioneers sing this hymn. It's quite a haunting and moving scene.

I sincerely hope all is well with you these days my friend and I am sending warm wishes and good energy to you from lake erie time ontario canada 1:03pm where it feels more like winter again by the lake although there is no wind(chill) and it's dry - and its the wind chill which always makes it much colder here as I live so close to the lake - everything is fine with Colin and Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel.

Thank you as always for your support and encouragement and of course your inspiring comments as I consider you a great Hub friend and esteemed colleague

Debby once again this persistent hub touches me at a down time. Its link appeared three or four times today, in my inbox! I ignored it twice. But it returned to me, demanding my attention. Rereading finally, I am astonished at its power. I feel as if I am reading it for the first time and it is lifting me up- I was not even aware that I was this far down! Thank you so much. We are linked even when we are seemingly lost to each other (sniff sniff).
