'Amazing Grace' Unique Arrangement From Bradford Loomis

'Amazing Grace' Unique Arrangement From Bradford Loomis

In this unique arrangement, artist Bradford Loomis sings the beloved hymn ‘Amazing Grace.’

“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see
Was Grace that taught my heart to fear, and Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear, the hour I first believed”

“A classic song of worship especially relevant in 2020, Amazing Grace was written by John Newton, a former slave trader turned abolitionist,” writes Bradford in the caption of his YouTube video. “May we continue to work for equity, equality and justice for all.”

Like Bradford said, this beloved hymn was originally written by John Newton. He wrote the hymn as a way of giving thanks to the Lord after He granted him new life. John’s life completely changed after he became a Christian, and this song was a way to give glory to God and all He had done for him.

Bradford Loomis is a Rhythm and Roots artist with a nice, raspy voice. According to his website, he “marries grit and melody to dig to the roots of American folklore and speak of the raw reality of the human condition with passion. His stories span several lifetimes of relatable emotions; bitterness & loss, deep longing & regret, enduring hope & love, elation & joy.”

May Bradford continue to use his gifts to share God’s light with others and uplift them with his talents.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Titus 2:11-14
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
