Bluegrass Family Band Performs Live Rendition Of 'Amazing Grace'

Rejoice in the hope of the Lord as The Petersens perform a live rendition of ‘Amazing Grace.’

Authored by John Newton, this beloved hymn was written as a way of giving thanks to the Lord after God granted John new life. As a sailor, John was known for his crude language and actions.

But one day at sea, John found himself caught in the middle of a terrible storm. John spent hours at the helm of the ship battling the waves and his thoughts started to turn to God.

After surviving the weather, John started his life as a Christian and dedicated himself to serving the Lord. The beautiful words of ‘Amazing Grace’ were inspired by this incredible moment of self-revelation.

“Amazing Grace,
How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see”

The Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. The band consists of siblings, Katie, Ellen, Matt, and Julianne, mom Karen, and family friend Emmett Franz.

This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can normally find them at home in Branson. For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.

Today, they are belting out the powerful words to ‘Amazing Grace’ and it’s one performance that you don’t want to miss.

“T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far
And Grace will lead us home”

Psalms 18:2 “The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”
