House Republicans Sing ‘Amazing Grace’

Two weeks ago they were meeting (hiding out) behind closed doors, swilling down so much booze reporters could smell it on them from 10 feet away, as they exited the room–today they’re bragging about belting out Amazing Grace.

House Republicans opened a debt limit meeting Tuesday morning with a group singing of “Amazing Grace.”

“All three verses, without the words written out,” Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) told a New York Times reporter. “Isn’t that impressive?”

Rep. Steve Southerland (R-IL), who was in charge of leading the morning prayer, broke out in song, and slowly the entire group began to sing along, a LA Times writer reported.


Perhaps the Democrats will respond with a few verses of “Fight The Good Fight”. My suggestion is they ALL repent and “Gather at the River”

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
