Abstract:

This video goes beyond the pages of well-worn hymnals to bring to life the events and stories of their creation and their message. "Amazing Grace" written by John Newton, a slave trader; "It Is Well With Me", penned by Horatio Spafford after losing his four daughters in an ocean tragedy; "What A Friend We Have In Jesus", a poem by Joseph Scriven after his fiancee drowned before their wedding, and "Silent Night", written by a parish priest who witnessed a birth that reminded him of that night in Bethlehem. "How Great Thou Art" inspired Carl Boberg, in the midst of a thunderstorm, to marvel at the power of God.
