So did I... though I liked it better than the IL Divo version.


Though this version definitely has tons of heart, especially the climatic end.

I think it pales in comparison to her original version back in the early 70s. I remember being moved by it back then, even in my wayward, agnostic years. I have a distinct image of hearing it on the tinny speakers of the yellow high school bus. God moves in mysterious ways![/url]

To borrow from Will Rogers:
I've never heard an Amazing Grace that I didn't like.

When I was a young boy the part about "When we've been there ten thousand years etc. etc." used to puzzle me greatly.

Still does after 60 more years.

After some 9,940 years, it shall all come clear to you - that should make you feel great now - but still puzzled (as are we all) - sorry, that is the best I can do... :wink:
