The Amazing Story of "Amazing Grace"

Today is the first Hymn of the Month installment. I have found a wonderful source of stories about hymn writers, a video series prepared by Mars Hill Church in Seattle, and will use several of them to give some insight into the lives of the writers. I will also share the lyrics or a recording of the hymn selected for the month.

The remarkable story of John Newton follows, along with a rendition of his beloved song, Amazing Grace, sung by Il Divo.
