What was it like in the Amazing Grace coffeehouse?
Boy, this question brings back memories! I remember seeing Jim Post there in the on-campus Amazing Grace back in '74. It was a very intimate and awesome performance. After that they moved to the Main Street area of Evanston. I remember seeing James Taylor's brother perform there. I dug around and found this comprehensive pdf http://www.library.northwestern.edu/archives/findingaids/Amazingrace.pdf you may want to download. I spent all my Babysitting money on the Amazing Grace Coffee House. I saw amazing performers there. Here's a list I recall: Odetta (I paid about 75 cents to see her), Steve Goodman, John Prine, Livingston Taylor, Sam Leopold, Kenny Bloom, Jim Post, Emmylou Harris, Redwood Landing, and more, but that's all I recall at the moment. It was an amazing place for teens since you could hear incredible performers/musicians and age didn't matter since they didn't serve alcohol. I wish that my 16 year old had a place like this to go. It was one of my fondest memories of childhood. It was a small ranchlike house right on the Northwestern campus and off the lakefront in Evanston. I just recall I was there pretty much every weekend and got all my friends hooked on it. I'm still playing guitar and I owe my interest to the Amazing Grace Coffee House. I hope that someone can put a clip on you tube. It would be great!

It is Ioan Gruffudd.
Literally translated, "amazing grace" can be rendered into Latin as "prodigiosa gratia". If you are looking for a translation of the popular Protestant hymn, "Amazing Grace" i…n Latin, this would be hard to come by as it was originally written and intended for English. Reproduction of the entire hymn in Latin is too arduous a task, though if anyone wishes to render it, please add on to this answer. I think the translation would go like this: Translations: " prodigiosus Venia , quam dulcis sound,That servo a miserabilis amo mihi. EGO quondam eram lost nam sum found,Was caecus , nam , EGO animadverto. T'was Venia ut doctus. meus pectus pectoris ut fear.And Venia , meus vereor precious did ut Venia videor. hora EGO primoris puto. Per plures periculosus , laboriosus quod insidiae. nos have iam come.T'was Venia ut brought nos tutus eatenus. quod Venia mos plumbum nos domus. Senior has pollicitus bonus volo. Suus vox meus spes secures.He mos meus contego quod prodigium exsisto. quoad vita tolero. Quin etiam , ut is viscus quod pectus pectoris vadum fail,and letalis vita vadum subsisto vadum usus intus veil,a vita of tripudium quod pacis. Ut we've been hic ten thousand annus. perspicuus rutilus ut sun.We've haud minor dies decurro God's laus. tunc ut we've primoris exorsus. " prodigiosus Venia , quam dulcis sanus , Ut servo a miserabilis amo mihi. EGO quondam eram lost nam sum found,Was caecus , nam , EGO animadverto.
What are the notes for amazing grace on the recorder
According to Wikipedia: ""Amazing Grace" is a Christian hymn written by English poet and clergyman John Newton (1725-1807), published in 1779."
The definition of Grace is 'an unmerited gift.' Amazing means so great that it is beyond imagination. Combined, the term amazing grace is referring to salvation and what… an incredibly wonderful gift it is because we really do not deserve salvation.
It is about John Newton and about his experiences and his lifestyle what he has been living through.
Amazing Grace was written by an Englishman named John Newton in the late 1700's. He was captain of several slave ships for over 20 years. He repented his sins became a preache…r and chose to live the rest of his life in solitude. During this period he wrote the hymn Amazing Grace about himself, his experience, and the revelation that led him to change his life. He also inspired and mentored his young friend William Wilberforce to begin a virtually singlehanded crusade in parliament that would span two decades and result in the abolition of slavery throughout the British empire.

There are many sites where you can find lyrics & chords to Christian songs. I find "tabcrawler" to be a pretty good site for both secular and Christian music. Or you try to ju…st google "Christian song chords", and then follow the instructions.
She didnt like it she said "I WONT LIVE LAUGH OR LOVE ASLONG AS THIS SONG IS PLAYING" hurtfULL
He was a slave himself yes but that is not the true topic of the song. What the song really means is that he was bound in sin but Jesus came to the earth and died on the cross… for his sins. All the bad things he had ever done where swept away and the burden was lifted by Jesus' blood that was shed on the cross.

In Gospel Music
When it was originally written, it is unknown what music, if any, accompanied the verses written by John Newton. The hymnbooks did not contain music and were simply small book…s of religious poetry. The first known instance of Newton's lines joined to music was in A Companion to the Countess of Huntingdon's Hymns (London, 1808), where it is set to the tune "Hephzibah" by English composer John Jenkins Husband. Common meter hymns were interchangeable with a variety of tunes; more than twenty musical settings of "Amazing Grace" circulated with varying popularity until 1835 when William Walker assigned Newton's words to a traditional song named "New Britain", which was itself an amalgamation of two melodies ("Gallaher" and "St. Mary") first published in the Columbian Harmony by Charles H. Spilman and Benjamin Shaw (Cincinnati, 1829). As neither tune is attributed and both show elements of oral transmission, scholars can only speculate that they are possibly of British origin. "Amazing Grace", with the words written by Newton and joined with "New Britain", the melody most currently associated with it, appeared for the first time in Walker's shape note tunebook Southern Harmony in 1847.
