On the first anniversary of Joey Feek's passing, let's remember her divine talent and strong spirit. Enjoy her take on "Amazing Grace" here.

One year ago, on March 4, 2016, Rory Feek shared the sad news of Joey Feek‘s passing after a courageous battle with cancer.

“In the 40 short years that Joey has lived, my bride has accomplished many great things… she’s lived a very full life. But even more than that, she has loved those around her greatly and been loved greatly in return. I can honestly say that Joey’s isn’t just a life well-lived, it’s a life well-loved,” Rory wrote on his This Life I Live blog right before her death.

To honor her memory, let’s take in her lovely voice and listen to her moving rendition of “Amazing Grace” below.

“Amazing Grace” Lyrics

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.
T’was Grace that taught…
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear…
the hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares…
we have already come.
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…
and Grace will lead us home.
The Lord has promised good to me…
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be…
as long as life endures.
When we’ve been here ten thousand years…
bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise…
then when we’ve first begun.
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.

Rest in peace, dear Joey (September 7, 1975 – March 4, 2016).
