The Most Famous Song Ever?…Remixed

There must be people who don’t care for this hymn, I just haven’t met any of them yet. Written by English clergyman, John Newton in 1772, Amazing Grace has established itself as arguably the most beloved song in the history of the Christian Church. The words are compelling, the doctrine is sound, and the tune (New Britain) is memorable. The 2006 feature film by this name, traces the work of abolitionist, William Wilberforce, while also recounting the origin of John Newton’s hymn. Among a myriad of musicians who have recorded and/or amended this hymn in recent years, Chris Tomlin’s version has garnered perhaps the most accolades. Have a listen/look at the video. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
