Craig Courtney's original melody on the beloved John Newton text is every bit as beautiful as the familiar tune. Expressive and richly harmonized, the anthem also includes original lyrics that contemplate the wonder of Christ's sacrifice for each individual sinner. A supportive yet soloistic piano accompaniment heightens the emotion of the work, bringing a depth of meaning to worship achieved by few other anthems. Available in three voicings, this is music of the highest caliber that is particularly moving during the Lenten season.
