Ура! Я разгадала загадку!

Жгучее желание выяснить, как называется эта потрясающая музыка в исполнении волынщиков и оркестров, таинственная скороговорка главного дирижера  "мезенгрейтс" и собственная необразованность не давали мне покоя несколько дней - и вот он, ответ!

The melody is believed to be Scottish or Irish  in origin; it is pentatonic and suggests a bagpipe  tune; the hymn is frequently performed on bagpipes and has become associated with that instrument. 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.

Кто ищет, тот всегда найдет.
