Christian song storms up UK chart

Wed 29 Nov 2017

A song extolling the transforming power of God at work in people's lives has reached seventh place in the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart.

Released by Christian rapper and grime star Stormzy, Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 2 previously topped the UK Independent Singles Chart.

The track, which was taken from the performer's Gang Signs & Prayer album, also features fellow British singer and songwriter, MNEK.

Making an overt reference to Stormzy's faith, the track's chorus says: "Lord, I've been broken.

"Although I'm not worthy, You fixed me; I'm blinded by your grace. You came and saved me."

Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 2 rose this week from its position last week of twelfth in the Chart - which includes physical sales, paid-for downloads and streaming.

The track has become a regular fixture of running schedules at BBC Radio 1, Capital and other mainstream stations popular among younger people.

The second verse of the song reads: "I said a prayer this morning, I prayed I would find a way. To another day, I was so afraid 'til you came and saved...

"And the rain was pouring, 'cause the sun faded away. Now I'm in a better place, no longer afraid. Blinded by your grace, you came and saved me, yeah".

The 24-year-old, who accepted a GQ award from Jeremy Corbyn in September, attracted criticism earlier this month for his language on social media.
