Returning again to the theme of seeing beauty in ugliness, making lemonade out of life’s lemons and forgiveness from sin. The song Amazing Grace has been loved and played for over 200 years, touching and inspiring billions. I put the music thru the grind-crusher and vocalized like an undead worm, and the song’s spirit just soars. My Amazing Grates cover is a song on the 6 Sucks Sex music album Sick Twisted Loving Jesus. Blessings to all – may you richly embrace God’s grace.

This cover features the traditional lyrics and music, modfied slightly – my version is below.
Lyrics: John Newton, 1779. Melody: “New Britain.” Charles H. Spilman and Benjamin Shaw, 1829. Public domain.
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind but now can see.
Was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious has that grace appeared
All the hours i have believed.
Thru many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
It’s grace that’s brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my faith secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Is forever mine.
