Amazing Grace and House of the Rising Sun

At the Louisiana Church of God Camp Meeting held at Camp Pollock I led worship for ten services. Wow. That was a lot of songs to prepare not counting making the powerpoint slides for each one.

The people seemed to enjoy what I was doing. I enjoyed it, too.

In my last podcast, You Can’t Please Everyone, I mentioned that one person/family was not happy with my selection of the following song.

So, I decided to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it.

Amazing Grace and House of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy and God I know I’m one

Now mothers tell your children not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery in the House of the Rising Sun

Amazing grace How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found Twas blind but now I see

Tis grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed

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

For sin you need a Savior and that’s what God has done
For in the town of Bethlehem  was born the Rising Son

Amazing grace How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found Twas blind but now I see

Amazing Grace and House of the Rising Sun

Remember, not everyone will like everything that you choose to do in life. Do the best you can. Be kind to everyone. If at all possible live at peace with everyone.
