Description
Hymn accoustic blues version.......I recorded this a few years back thought maybe....some might like to listen to this version of Amazing Grace...

The Hymn was written by a slave trader John Newton
Sailing back to England in 1748 aboard the slave-ship Greyhound on the Atlantic triangle trade route, the ship encountered a severe storm and almost sank. Newton awoke in the middle of the night and prayed to God as the ship filled with water. It was this experience which he later marked as the beginnings of his conversion to evangelical Christianity. As the ship sailed home, Newton began to read the Bible and other religious literature. By the time he reached Britain, he had accepted the Lord. The date was March 10, 1748, an anniversary he marked for the rest of his life. From that point on, he avoided profanity, gambling, and drinking,......and finally quit the slave trade.....he became a preacher.....

Nice bluesy version
and I never tire of reading the story behind this song. It's Amazing Grace, indeed, that a slave trader wrote the most famous hymn of all time, once he understood what Jesus had come to do. Thank you for sharing your version with us; I enjoyed the mellow but modern style.

Amazing Grace by Soulman4270
You breathed some more life into an old favorite. Your voice is right on! Essentially perfect, and more than likely to remain a classic touchstone for years to come. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS! (I could, but the posting would be too long). WONDERFUL, AMAZING, HEARTFELT . . . .

I was thinking of Elvis' version.
Your rendition isn't as affected as his was. Mellow and bluesy without that massive ego fighting for attention. I am familiar with the story and have always been moved by these words. Faithfully done. Thanks.
