    If I promise not to cry
    Will you look me in the eye
    And tell me that you've known me?
    I was your late, your lonely child
    I am enhanced by all you've shown me

    And in my youth I did defy you to the end
    Please forgive my wildness then
    Even I can't comprehend
    What a mother's love has lent
    To all that is me

    And will you sing this song again?
    Let us sing it hand in hand
    While the band is still playing
    Before the light can loose your hand
    Before I lose my voice again
    Let us sing while it's playing

    And if I promise not to cry
    Please look me in the eye
    And say, "You've truly known me"
    'Tis the sweet sound of goodbye
    Amazing grace how sweet the sound

    Between your soul and mine
    If I promise not to cry
    If I promise not to cry
