 Amazing Race 

To "Amazing Grace"

(Traditional)

(Words by John Newton)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

IN RAISING RACE, WITH OPEN EYES.
BUT WITH A HOPEFUL HEART.
THE CASE WAS MADE TO REALIZE.
WE MUST NOT GROW APART.
 
FOR HOW WE CARE, AND WHAT WE DREAM
CAN MOVE US TO CONNECT.
AND IF WE DARE TO SHARE THAT THEME. 
OUR UNION MIGHT PERFECT.
 
BUT THIS IS NOT A FAIRY TALE.
THERE'S RAGE THAT RUNS SO HIGH.
IT MAY BE THOUGHT WE'RE DOOMED TO FAIL.
NO MATTER HOW WE TRY.
 
WHAT WE MUST FIGHT WE CANNOT WIN
IF WE OURSELVES ESTRANGE.
WHATEVER SKIN WE'RE SPINNING IN.
THE TIME HAS COME TO CHANGE.
 
HIS VOICE AS IT RINGS OUT. 
AND SINGS OUT, SO BRIGHT.
IS RISING LIKE THE SUN.
HIS CHOICE IS CLEAR AS MORNING LIGHT.
TO RECOGNIZE WE'RE ONE.
 
WE HAVE A PAST WE HAVE TO FACE.
THAT'S CAST OUR PRESENT PLACE.
HIS RISK WAS VAST IN RAISING RACE.
AT LAST.
AMAZING GRACE.
