The Awesome Message Behind The Song Amazing Grace… Beautiful.‏

This video is gorgeous, but did you know the song Amazing Grace was written by English clergyman John Newton. The overall message in the song is that through God’s great mercy, no matter how great our sins may be, forgiveness, and redemption are available, and that our souls can be saved from despair.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith.” – Ephesians 2:8

Amazing Grace is an incredibly well known folk song that has been around since it was published in 1779. It has been estimated that Amazing Grace is sung ten million times every year. I believe that is because it’s important message has stood the test of time, and proven to be true.
