The Statler Brothers Amazin Grace (long version)
YouTube ^ | 2/21/14

Posted on 02/21/2014 9:31:52 PM PST by Kartographer

I was coming back from Navajo country Thursday afternoon Michael Savage was so depressing (true but depressing) that I search the radio and come on this song playing on the another station. I had never heard the Statler Brothers version of Amazing Grace. Listen and you will see why it is now one of my favorites. Funny thing when the song was over the annoucer was speaking Navajo and the only thing I could understand was when he said The Statler Brothers!

“When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.”

That’s my favorite verse...What joy and peace we have in our hearts thanks to our Lord and Savior.

Apparently the NSA doesn't like Americans listening to Amazing Grace.

I just tried the link and it worked. I am in the central US.

It may be some setting in your browser.

Thank you very much for this link.

Amazing Grace is my favorite song. I've requested that it be sung at my funeral, and played by a distant piper at the internment.

This also brings back fond memories of a good friend who introduced me to The Statler Brothers in college.

I appreciate all you bring to FR, Kartographer.

Go one better, put all the songs you want on CD for your funeral. I’m at that age where people begin to plan for it. I have every thing laid out in a Medium plastic box, my instructions to the preacher, my music I chose by the artist I like, including the items that go in my coffin with me, down to my wedding ban and my Bible.

There will be NO funeral home music played, it is junk. I want a CELEBRATION collections of songs. I celebrate going HOME.

When my late husband died, I put the gospel songs he played and sang on CD, I did not care if it made some uncomfortable, it was HIS wish. Master’s Bouquet was one of his favorites. This is his version, you will have to turn up the sound. It is not fancy as I am just learning to up load to You Tube and do not know how to increase the volume there is a silent lead in so be patient. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQSXBcjrGP4

Thank you for your advice, GailA, and for introducing me to the music of your late husband. I particularly enjoyed his version of Unclouded Day.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your husband.

Glad you did, God’s gain is my loss, but HE is good, He sent another good Christian man into my life a few years later. Dennis was just 57, massive heart attack, no regular symptoms, more like food poisoning. Which I knew could not be the case. Feel free to down load any you like.

Listen to some of the others that are on the side. I think you will enjoy them too. He put his touch on every standard song he did. He was a master musician. Taught himself piano at 7, guitar in his teens, and then Keyboard when Arthur got his fingers and made cording a guitar impossible.

Unseen hands was written by a local gospel artist, music was a little off and Dennis fixed it, The other two are my late pastor and his wife she rarely plays any more.
