"I once was lost but now am found..."

I'm tired, sleepless and emotional. I don't have an iPod. I have a "mix" of good old Rock'n'Roll and Soul music in a 2 GB pen drive, in one folder. There are so many musics in the folder, that I never heard it from beginning to end. I was preparing to turn my computer off and I heard the voice of Aretha Franklin, starting ten long minutes of a fantastic version of “Amazing Grace”.

“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.”
(…)
“The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.”

Does God play dice? I don’t think so…
