Classic Performance Of ‘Amazing Grace’ From Gaither Vocal Band

A group of skilled and gifted vocalists sang what is arguably the most beloved and iconic hymn of all time.

Hymns, because of their touching, moving and truth-filled lyrics, are powerful pieces of music. When listening to such classics as “How Great Thou Art,” “It is Well” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness,” it’s no wonder why they have been performed in churches for decades.

However, as powerful and beloved as those aforementioned hymns are, there is one that stands out among the rest. For most people, it likely only takes a few notes before they immediately recognize “Amazing Grace.” 

“Amazing Grace” has been played and performed millions of times but it never ever loses its power. The song’s message about God’s grace, love and forgiveness is as fresh and moving now as it was when you first heard it. 

In a clip posted to YouTube, the Gaither Vocal Band performs “Amazing Grace.” The guys’ rendition is awe-inspiring, stirring and stellar. They put on a powerful performance that perfectly displays the strength of their voices.

Also, in a way to differentiate from the thousands of other times the song has been performed throughout the years, the musicians change things up a bit. The musicians accompanying the vocalists give the tune an Irish/Scottish sound and feel at the beginning and at the end. 

Additionally, at approximately the 1:55-minute mark in the clip, the musicians change things up again. They pick up the tempo, giving it an almost patriotic feel and sound. 

Regardless of the slight variation in sound, the song’s powerful and moving lyrics remain the same. This clip is another in a long line of beautiful and touching performances of the hymn that is near and dear to the hearts of many, “Amazing Grace.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”
