Written by John Newton
About this song, some people may think about death. But to me, it reminds me that there is life in God because "...In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)". We are of course the sinful men (1 John 1:8-9), but just like what Ephesians 2:8-9 said, God will FORGIVE our sins and PURIFY us from all unrighteousness if we confess our sins.
To me, God is real and I hope everyone don't miss the chance to accept Him. Seek Him, and I believe you will find Him because this is His promise (Matthew 7:7).
