Did John Newton quote scripture?
One of Jesus' many healings.
..."I was blind but now I see!"
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.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,And grace my fears relieved.How precious did that grace appearThe hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,I have already come.'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,And grace will lead me home.
