Herman Cain’s Gospel: ‘He Looked Beyond My Faults’

Oct 31, 2011 3:37pm

One of the more interesting moments during Herman Cain’s appearance today at the National Press Club came not when he struck back hard against reports that he sexually harassed an employee of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, but when he burst into song at the end.

The song, “He Looked Beyond My Faults,” was written by Dottie Rambo. Watch Cain’s performance at the end of a news conference in Washington.

 

 

Read more about harassment allegations that Cain has forcefully denied.

Cain is no amateur at Gospel or singing. He released a gospel album in 1996. Read more about his music career.

And he has sung “He Looked Beyond My Faults” at other events on the campaign trail. ABC News’ Susan Archer recorded this version at a campaign stop this month in Tennessee.

 

 

Here are the full lyrics of the song.

Amazing Grace..Will always be my song of praise.
For it was grace, that brought me liberty,
I do not know, just why He came to love me so.
He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

I shall forever lift mine eyes to Calvary,
To view the cross, where Jesus died for me
How marvelous, His grace that caught my falling soul
He Looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

(Instrumental)

I shall forever lift mine eyes to Calvary,
To view the cross, where Jesus died for me
How marvelous, His grace that caught my falling soul
He Looked beyond my faults and saw my needs,
He Looked beyond my faults and saw my needs.
