I just began to live

I remember the chorus of a song from when I was a child, I thought in the hymnal we used, it was a chorus to Amazing Grace, but I have never seen it again in any other hymnal. The chorus goes "I just began to live, I just began to live, when God's Amazing Grace came in, I just began to live - old things have passed away, I'll have a brighter day, my names recorded up above, I just began to live" It may have been from another hymn, just trying to find out what it is. Thanks for any help!

Growing up, like you, that was sang at our church also, i ask my father, he said the "Happy Goodmans" did it, and that is how they sang it, like a chorus.

My family's church sang that often as well. And it was sang like that, as a chorus in Amazing Grace.

The Chorus was an addition by the "Singing Speer" family. 'Dad' Speer wrote the Chorus and started adding it when they sang at Gospel Hours.
Here is a link to the album cover. I've seen it on the Hilton Griswold program called "Inspiration Time". You might find it on YouTube.

I was searching for peace and joy, rest for my weary soul,
I’m drinking from the well of this world, and sin had took control,
Then I knelt down at an altar of prayer, The Blessed Savior met me there,
And when I rised I realized, I just began to live.

I just began to live, I just began to live
When God’s amazing Grace came in I just began to live,
Old things have passed away, I have a brighter day,
My names recorded up above and I just began to live.

Now I am so happy, I have peace down in my heart,
It’s good to know there is a love in me that will never depart,
Now you may think that you are livin’ by taking what this world has givn’
But I testify to Jesus Christ, I just began to live.
