What a blessing! May I say I have goosebumps!? Sometimes I refer to them as Jesus Bumps! I knew John Newton had been a slave trader, and had writeen Amazing Grace, but never realized he didn't write the music. This gentleman helped me visualize what this beautiful hymn must have sounded like for Mr. Newton. I bet he got "Jesus Bumps" too!
