Musical Monday: Amazing Grace revisited

I recorded and re-recorded the original version of this song, until I realized it was such an iconic piece that I was kind of freaking myself out over it. So, on a whim I sang the words to a melody I came up with on the fly. Forgive me for tampering with such a symbol of American Christianity, but I have been playing around with the a capella style and thought this would be fun.

I have felt grace in my life. I have felt it lately. I have felt it this very day. And as we all face unknown futures, at least we have grace to cushion us and give us hope. Soft, warm, undeserved grace.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace has, for as long as I can remember, been a favorite of mine. Your new melody serves it well. Nicely done!

LOVE the a capella! This is one of my faves (I assume you have seen the movie about it, right?) but I have never heard this melody. Love it!

Beautiful as usual Kazzy. I love your on-the-fly melody. It captured the depth of the words completely. I got goose-bumps while listening. I honestly did.

I've never heard this melody before. Very nice choice. I too have felt like I've been carried by grace of late.
