Amazing Grace

by Heidi

I love the hymn, Amazing Grace.  I’ve sung it nearly every night to each of my babies, their eyes trained on my face as they lay in my arms.  Gunnar can sing most of it, but when he can’t find the right words he just makes up his own phrases.  When he sings his own lyrics I realize he understands the meaning in the way only a child can.  This hymn is probably the most personally meaningful to me of all the many hymns I know, and I love hearing the rich history of its origin in this clip.
