Amazing Grace In The Most Unexpected Of Places
"Amazing Grace" is one of the most recognizable Christian hymns in the English-speaking world. The text by English poet and Anglican clergyman John Newton (1725–1807) was first published in 1779. The words describe in first person the move of a "wretch" from a "lost" to a "found" state by a merciful act of God.
Over 6,000 recordings of this ancient song have been made. From Ray Charles to Johnny Cash to Il Divvo to Arlo Guthrie at Woodstock, no less, this hymn of power and belief has become an anthem to lost souls and believers of every persuasion. This version captures the essence of the great lyrical beauty and the soulful quality embodied in this timeless gospel classic. In a word - it's amazing!
I'd like to teach the world to sing, indeed - Enjoy!
