The Kingdom Here Touch Hearts With 'Amazing Grace' And 'Give Me Jesus' Covers

An unbelievably talented group of musicians, The Kingdom Here, turned in astounding and heartfelt covers of “Amazing Grace” and “Give Me Jesus.”

If there is music, there will be musicians performing covers. That is a tradition and practice that is not going away anytime soon. People love the original versions of songs, but sometimes it’s nice to hear different takes and interpretations of classic, beloved songs. Sometimes, you may even like another musician’s version of a timeless tune.

Every musician and band covers a handful of popular songs at one point or another in their career. There are a ton of versions of “Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Hallelujah,” and “Unchained Melody.” It’s understandable why all those songs have been covered so heavily. They are classics that you can play, and everyone instantly knows them right from the opening notes. 

However, one song has arguably been covered more than any other: “Amazing Grace.” It feels and sounds like there are thousands of covers of that beloved hymn. Some are better than others, of course. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, The Kingdom Here provides their take on “Amazing Grace” and “Give Me Jesus.” Their performances of those classic tunes are fantastic, but their version of “Amazing Grace” is particularly noteworthy. It’s likely one of the best covers of that song, in my opinion.

The bluegrass/country sound combined with the upbeat tempo makes this one you'll want to hear repeatedly.

“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”

On their YouTube channel, The Kingdom Here describes themselves as a “traveling family worship band” who seek to use their musical abilities to worship Jesus and “help people see the goodness of God.”

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
