Amazing Grace, Amazing Voice


If LeAnn Rimes' country voice is too sweet for your liking, you can also listen to Aerosmith's good ol' rocker Steven Tyler singing this same hymn in church with Juliaette Hamilton (Dude Sings With a Lady) - just click here.
Amazing Grace that saved a wretch like me... so true! And what about Chris Tomlin's version of Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)? Click here. Tell me: which version do you prefer?

Hey Paul, I just love this hymn. Chris Tomlin's version adds something in the context and i love what he has done with it. I also know Chris means every word. We wait patiently for the arrival of the movie Amazing Grace, but it may pass Hong Kong By.

Thanks for the listening pleasure.

Blessings

I like 'em all but I guess I prefer Tyler's version. He sings it with such conviction that it seems he truly believes it! And I hope he does!

Chris Tomlin gets my vote. This is by far my favorite song ever and he has now added more meaning.

Are the lyrics available somewhere??

@ Pam

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
