Top Contemporary Versions of Amazing Grace

Top Contemporary Versions of Amazing Grace

Oh, amazing grace!

One of the sweetest and most loved songs in all Christendom. We always hear this hymn being sung in churches, in schools, in the malls, in funerals – virtually everywhere. Every christian you know would certainly be able to sing this song from its first stanzas. It’s universally recognized as a christian hymn by across different types of christian denominations all around the world.

John Newton wrote this wonderful hymn. He lived a troubled life. A sailor by profession, he facilitated the trans-Atlantic slave trade bringing thousands of slaves to the Americas. He witnessed how evil this practice was but he turned a blind eye to it. After becoming a born-again Christian, he became a clergyman in the Church of England.

Amazing Grace was John Newton’s stunning turn around from a life of evil and hate to a life of goodness and love. He gave his life away for Christ and he never looked back since.

237 years after the hymn’s publishing, John Newton’s words still ring true to so many today, “I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see”. Such a wonderful song that stirs the soul to its core.
