Grace, grace, amazing grace. It surrounds us and we ignore it. John Newton's hymn itself has become at times almost like elevator music, part of the background noise. Pro-abortion groups sing "Amazing Grace" and sway. Last year the University of Texas band played the hymn at halftime of its game with Texas A&M. But we rarely think about the words-"saved a wretch like me"-and the full awesomeness of God's sovereign grace.
