I have always struggled with the hymn Amazing Grace. It has some wonderful imagery in it, yet the playfully twee 3/4 time signature always seems to be too much of a juxtaposition for me; it's to 'nice'!
Be Thou My Vision was one of the first 'hymns' that I found real power in, and that was before we all started playing it in 4/4 with lots of drums. When that revolution came though, so many people found new life in the old song, simply because someone 'messed' with it.
There are lot's of worship leaders who have done their version of old hymns, but only a few have been different enough to be remembered, so when I read my American Friend's blog on some thing Chris Tomin has done, well, I look forward to it with great anticipation...
So I guess I need to 'See the Morning' to see how well it works!
