Celtic Thunder Captivates With 'Amazing Grace' Performance Lyric Video

A group of supremely talented vocalists, Celtic Thunder, turned in a captivating and moving rendition of the beloved hymn “Amazing Grace” in a lyric video.

There are a handful of songs that nearly the entire population knows. These beloved and universally known songs span every genre and musical taste. They have become so ingrained in our culture that everyone can recite these lyrics entirely from memory at a moment’s notice.

Patriotic tunes like “The Star-Spangled Banner” and Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” are included in that special category because they are continually played around the Fourth of July. Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on A Prayer” and Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” are two secular tunes that are highly familiar to many. 

But when it comes to hymns, one stands out among the rest. “Amazing Grace” is timeless and has been covered thousands of times by hundreds of artists. It’s so relatable because we’re all sinners in need of grace. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, the talented guys who make up Celtic Thunder perform the familiar hymn, putting on an awe-inspiring performance. Also, if you are one of a handful of people who don’t already know the lyrics of “Amazing Grace,” they have been added at the bottom of the screen.

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like

I once was lost, but now am found

Was blind, but now I see”

In music history, there probably is not an opening verse more beloved, familiar or moving than that of “Amazing Grace.” Those words are enough to cause even the most stoic and unemotional person to shed a tear or two. 

That opening verse describes a situation that all Christians have found themselves in at one time or another and describes the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. 

And that is why “Amazing Grace” is so beloved and iconic!

Ephesians 2:8 “Because by grace you have salvation through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is given by God:”
