Every two months, our Sursum Corda homeschool community learns a song, a scripture verse, and a proverb in Latin. The first song for the 2020 school year was this Latin translation of “Amazing Grace.” My sister, Lindsay Feldmeth Westra, graciously joined me to sing it on Refugio Beach!
O MIRA GRATIA / AMAZING GRACE (John Newton)  (tr. Llewellyn) O mira quanta gratia Redemit reum me. Erranti luxit placida Blanda mirifice. Quod magna tot pericula Iam salvus passus sum Id Gratiae retribuam Quae ducet me domum. Cum saecula viderimus Ut sol splendentia Nos modo peregerimus Laudum initia.
Here is a printable version, with an ultra-literal translation
