Trotta Amazing GraceThe harmonic language of this setting of “Amazing Grace” portrays a feeling of mystery and awe. Completely original music is matched with this most familiar John Newton text to create an experience that feels both familiar, but simultaneously transports the listener to someplace new.

Original Text

Faith’s Review and Expectation
by John Newton
Based on 1 Chronicles 17:16–17
As appeared in Olney Hymns, 1779

Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound) That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believ’d!

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.
