Amazing Grace

Faith's Review and Expectations - How Sweet The Sound - New Britain



This score presents the hymn Amazing Grace in a four-voice arrangement for Choir SATB.

This sheet music contains the complete lyrics in English (7 verses).

The song Amazing Grace is a beautiful and peaceful Christian hymn about wonder and gratefulness.

The melody is pentatonic and suggests a bagpipe tune.

The lyrics were written in 1772 by John Newton, a former slave trader who had converted to Christianity.

The hymn is about divine grace; it is based on 1 Chronicles 17:16-17, a prayer of King David in which he marvels at God's choosing him and his house.

It is believed that Newton wrote this hymn for his 1773 New Year's Day sermon; he then entitled the piece Faith's Review and Expectations.

This hymn conveys a powerful message and bears strong references to human rights and freedom.
