A spiritual that has crossed all boundries to become a song that people sing when they are tired or sad or hopeful in place where hope is all you have. It is an uplifting song. It feels really good to sing. Not everybody knows the words, but they know the melody and they are happy to hum along.
There is an inspiring history to the writing of the song rooted in slave trading and forgiveness. With or without it’s history, with or without your spirituality “Amazing Grace” has taken on a power of its own. It feels really good to be singing it. Again and again.
