A Little About This Song…

Amazing Grace is perhaps the most recognizable Christian hymn of all time. The lyrics were written in 1789 by John Newton sung to a tune known as  “New Britain”.  Newton had a dubious past but upon his conversion at age 30, he became a clergyman and soon afterward penned this soulful song. It was sung frequently at demonstrations during the Civil Rights movement, Vietnam War protests and other times of great struggle.

But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
