Following tremendous success in rock 'n roll, country, pop, blues, and others - one of the biggest legends in music history returned to his gospel roots for a final showcase.

Elvis Presley's rendition of the centuries-old hymn, "Amazing Grace", was released as a contemporary song both adapted and arranged by the singer for his third gospel album in 1972. He Touched Me would come to be Presley's final gospel album, released just five years before his untimely passing.

Although not released as a single, Elvis' rendition of "Amazing Grace" has been a notable variant of the traditional hymn. Written in 1779 by an English poet, John Newton, the song exclaims about salvation, forgiveness, and redemption for past sins with the mercy of God saving the soul. The song was associated with varying melodies, but the one most recognizable didn't accompany the hymn until 1835. 

Elvis' return to gospel had proven to be an excellent choice for the singer. From his three albums in that genre, Presley achieved notable successes and even hit the top of the charts with singles like "Surrender"

Enjoy this incredible blast from past below!

LYRICS BELOW

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
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
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home
Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
To save a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
Was blind, but now I see
