In a dream
A midnight woman came to me
Her hair of black wool 
Skin a golden bronze
Lightning in her eyes

She sang to me and 
A roar and rumble

Why are you just sitting here
Why do you look as if you are suffering
Why are you sad in such pain and despair
Tell me why are you lying here

There are bodies piling in the alleys
From sea to shining sea
In the valleys
We are not safe in the streets
Or in our homes
Schools, churches
We are slain by the thousands
They poison our water
Let bullets come the sky
Rain daily in our lives
Gunshots and sirens
Sing in harmony
I am sure death
‘round the corner from me
Patiently it does not wait.

There are cops killing us
While we still kill ourselves
I see no signs of help
I was so lost
Grace nowhere to be found
I was blind
Grace nowhere in sight

I was looking for grace in the midst of my fears
My fears were not relieved
Is there a grace 
That would save a wretch like me
Then the midnight woman appeared

Amazing Grace
Saved
Is there a grace
Saved
You are saved
Amazing Grace

How sweet the sound 
She sang to me
Now go will you rise
Will you stand and fight for me
Will you go and let the world know 
That by grace you have overcome
That any danger no matter when you 
Doubt and fear
It was grace that brought you this far

There are cops killing us
While we still kill ourselves
What is grace, would it save a wretch like me
I was so lost
Grace, will I be found
I was blind
Grace, can I see

I am not lost in my fears 
My fears are alive and real
Is there a grace 
That would save a wretch like me
Then the midnight woman appeared

Don’t ask to be saved
You have had grace all along
Don’t ask to be free 
You have had freedom 
Can’t you see how far you’ve come
By Grace, there is more in store son

Yes there is a grace
That would save a wretch like you
Amazing Grace
I am saved
Amazing grace

Why should I have ever feared
Knowing that they would soon be relieved
Why do i fret or worry about dangers
Though they’re weapons 
May they not harm me
I am sure death
‘round the corner from me
Patiently it does not wait.

The midnight woman sang
How sweet the sound
Amazing grace
I am saved 
Yes there is a grace that would save you and me
Amazing grace
We are saved

I was so lost
Grace, now I am found
I was blind
Amazing Grace 
I see

If it were not 
only a dream
Amazing grace
Am I saved
Am I free
