A Note From David
Respite with River City
Perhaps the most well-known work in Christian hymnody is Reverend John Newton’s beautiful “Amazing Grace.” The gift of grace and forgiveness is often appreciated best by those who need it most. His tombstone tells the story: “John Newton, clerk, once an infidel and Libertine, a servant of slavers in Africa, was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had so long labored to destroy.”
In this video’s version, the beloved lyrics of this wonderful hymn are heard in a gorgeous original setting by composer and arranger Craig Courtney.
We hope you will find the River City Men’s Chorus’s performance of “Amazing Grace” to be meaningful and comforting. Be safe and well until we meet again.
