Amazing Grace

Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see.

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!

And Can It Be

And can be that I should gain,
an interest in my Savior's blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love, how can it be
That thou my Lord should die for me?

Amazing love, how can it be
That thou my God should die for me?

Lord's Prayer Traditional

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen

The Print function will print with the changes in the .css file and the Copy as HTML button will capture the output with the changes made to the .css file. If you need to edit the output of the service print window here is a workaround that will produce a copy of your .css changes for use in your word processer. 1. Open the service print window. 2. Make any needed changes in the options menu. 3. Select the 'Copy as HTML' button. 4. Open a text editor. 5. Paste the copied text into the text editor. 6. Save the file from the text editor with the .html file extension. 7. Open the file you saved in your web browser. 8. Select and Copy the text in the web browser. 9. Open your word processor. 10. Paste the copied text into your word processor. Note: If the first line in your word processor is not what is shown in your web browser, try a different web browser. Some web browsers will not copy the formating for the first line of text in the browser window. ..
