How Amazing is Grace? John Newton in a Heartbeat

slavery_business_gallery_051

– John Newton was born in London July 24, 1725

– He became the servant of a slave trader and was brutally abused

– He became captain of his own ship, and transported slaves

– While he was attempting to steer his ship through a violent storm he exclaimed, “Lord, have mercy upon us.”

– Wrote the following, “Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ’tis grace has bro’t me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.”

Once a man who transported slaves for trade – now a man that God has sovereignly saved. Unreal!

Below is a painting of what a ship would look like.  John Newton used a ship to transport hundreds of slaves although about a third of the slaves died while in transit.

Below are the lyrics of this wonderful hymn written in 1772

 

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.
