“Amazing Grace”

This week we talked about the second verse of Amazing Grace written by John Newton 250 years ago.  He saw his struggles as grace that led him to call out to God and he saw God’s salvation as grace for the undeserved.  It is all “precious.”  We thought of Elvis Presley singing “Take my hand, precious Lord”.  “How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.”

     I looked for another musical version of Amazing Grace and the Internet came up with Diana Ross, another icon of the 60s singing Amazing Grace in Budapest.  Enjoy.

         Tomorrow our psalm will focus on Psalm 116.  The writer focuses on how we respond to the gift of grace that Easter offers us.  This popular worship song puts that psalm to music.  Let us release our hearts to worship this morning.

“What Can I Give Unto the Lord”
