John Newton: The Man Behind the Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace is one of the most famous songs in the world and has one of the most fascinating backstories. The song was written by John Newton, a former slave trader who eventually turned to Christianity and began writing spirituals.
He penned this song, the title of which translates to “The Whale’s Tail, ” after a terrible storm wrecked the ship he was working on off the coast of Africa.
Newton was such a great writer that he was able to turn this traumatic experience into an uplifting hymn. The Amazing Grace song was first performed on the world stage at an anti-slavery rally. Newton had been tasked with writing a hymn to be performed at a meeting that aimed to convince Parliament to repeal the act.
The lyrics are said to have been crafted by Newton while he was still in his nightgown as he waited for the day to start on Nov. 16, 1773. It was said to have been composed in less than 10 minutes. He was born in 1725 in London, England.
This song was born while John Newton was working on a slave ship and he felt real guilt for the things he was doing on the ship. Newton, a former slave trader and a captain of a ship that made 3 round trips to Africa during which he traded slaves, sold supplies and transported people back to the Caribbean where they were sold again.
However, Newton was converted to Christianity by the preaching of George Whitefield, an evangelical speaker who traveled throughout England, the American colonies, and Wales during the First Great Awakening.
