Amazing Grace - Sheet Music for Native American Flute

Amazing Grace, as first published in 1779

Amazing Grace, from [Newton-J 1779] More information

Amazing Grace is one of the most recognized songs in the English-speaking world.

The lyrics were written by English poet and clergyman John Newton (1725–1807). In early life, he was a sailor of no religious conviction who worked his way up to the captain of a ship that was active in the slave trade. His conversion to Christianity was sparked by a storm on May 10, 1748 that battered his vessel so severely that he became frightened enough to call out to God for mercy ([Leaver 1979], [Leaver 1980], and [Stowe 2004] are general references for background information on John Newton and this song).
