Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace" one of the most powerful Christian hymns has been sung amazingly by the most powerful man on earth, Barak Obama and the 2 most powerless men, Andrew Chan and Mayuran Sugumaran, in the last couple of months.
Obama has delivered the eulogy at the service for the church leader who was among nine people shot dead during attack on the bible study group at a historic African-American church.
The hymn Amazing Grace which convicted drug traffickers Mayruan and Andrew sang while being executed was ironically written by a former slave trader called John Newton.
The hymn was written for the New Year's Day sermon in 1773. The hymn illustrates the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God.
Our prayers are with the Christians who are being persecuted in many parts of the world.
"We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise"
