With more than 200 bagpipes playing Amazing Grace, this is one performance you won’t soon forget!
"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, t’was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved, how precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed"
What a beautiful performance of this beloved song! This video of ‘Amazing Grace' was filmed live at the Berlin Tattoo in Germany, and the name of the vocalist in the video is Carl Ellis. His voice is wonderful, and the addition of the bagpipes is hauntingly beautiful.
"What an incredible voice that man has! I came for the bagpipes, but his voice blew me away," comments one person on YouTube after watching the music video.
"This gives me goosebumps. What a performance. Proud to be Scottish. Doesn’t matter what country you are in, a performance like this will stir your blood," writes another person online.
Amazing Grace, A Timeless Classic
There is a reason the hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ remains a favorite hymn for so many people. The powerful lyrics remind us that because of Jesus, none of us are ever lost because God is with us always.
The author of this hymn was John Newton, and he wrote this song after safely landing in Donegal, Ireland, after being caught in a storm at sea. This safe arrival would mark the start of his return to Christianity.
Up until the point of coming to Ireland, John Newton was involved in the Slave Trade. In 1748, Newton was traveling from Africa to Liverpool and got caught up in an awful storm. The weather conditions were so severe that Newton called out to God, asking for mercy. The ship safely reached Ireland, and that event marked the beginning of John Newton's spiritual conversion. He started to read the Bible, got out of the Slave Trade, became an Anglican Priest, and ended up writing many hymns, including ‘Amazing Grace.'
We hope that you enjoyed listening to this rendition of ‘Amazing Grace' today!
