Ancient MSS declare that the popularized difficult reading/singing of first line in the second verse “’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear” was originally recorded as: “Twice taught this grace my heart to fear.” It is quite apparent from this ancient sola-red-back-hymnala that the idea of once-saved-always-saved was foreign to the author. Quite the contrary, he introduces the idea of two-grace-touched, clearly a poetical reference to first and second works of grace. Rick Wadholm Jr

the song was written before the man-made doctrine OSAS was concocted! OSAS came as a result of the free will doctrines American/British theologians.

Oh come on – it does not get more Wesleyan / Arminian:
I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace.
The sinner possesses life – not life possessing the sinner.

and then again in the next line “But God …. will be forever mine.”

Being the case, how can a reformed calvinator truly sing that God’s grace is “amazing”? Alan N Carla Smith Jon Sellers John Earp

When I next meet up with a reformed calvinator I’ll ask her for you!!!

The senior pastor pulled me aside and, in his infamous dramatic baritone, directed me on how to lead the small group. “I need you to emphasize reprobation,” he said. “I believe it’s essential to understanding the gospel. And these people are way too soft when it comes to the absolute sovereignty of God. I’m a supralapsarian, you know.”

    there is a theory to that effect, it is Arminianism
