(as sung by the Mississippi Mass Choir

Chorus:
Weeping may endure for a night
But joy is gonna come in the morning.

{repeat several times}

First verse:
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now I am found
was blind but now I see

Chorus:
Weeping may endure for a night
but joy comes in the morning

Verse #2
I came to Jesus just as I was
Weary worn and sad
I found in Him
a resting place
Ad He has made me glad.

Weeping may endure for a night
but joy comes in the morning

transcription of the basic lyrics to this song by Azizi Powell. Additions & corrections are welcome.

The line "weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning" are from the Old Testament (Psalm 30:5). The verse which begins "Amazing Grace" is from the religious song with that title. The verse which begins with "I came to Jesus" is from the religious song "I Heard The Voice Of Jesus Say".

I'm not sure if the Mississippi Mass choir was the first choir that combined those Bible verses with the "weeping my endure for the night" song lyrics.
