Amazing grace – New Britain

First line:
Amazing grace
author of text

Amazing grace has words by John Newton, published as long ago as 1779, while the tune known as 'New Britain' is traditional. Newton’s personal experience in being saved from a storm at sea inspired in him a spiritual conversion. He was ordained as a clergyman in 1764. Published in 1829, the familiar melody 'New Britain' is an amalgam of two previously existing tunes.
