Amazing Grace
Composed by a slave ship captain

It is a hymn published in 1779. The words were written by the poet John Newton, and it has become one of the world’s most famous hymns.

Newton’s life was filled with drama that was often caused by his arrogance. He became involved in the Atlantic slave trade. A violent storm battered his ship off the coast of Ireland, so he called to God for mercy, an experience that was his spiritual rebirth.

He continued his slave trading until 1754, when he began studying theology.

Newton began to write music with the poet William Cowper. Amazing Grace was first printed in 1779. It has been linked with more than 27 melodies, and in 1835 it became associated with a tune named New Britain, to which it is sung today.
