John Newton (1725-1807), was the captain of a slave trading ship who became converted and wrote the famous spiritual song Amazing Grace.  He was so depraved in his former profession that even his crew became disgusted.  Once in a drunken stupor he fell overboard, and to save him his crew threw a harpoon through his leg and yanked him back on board.  His constant limp thereafter was a reminder of him how God could save such a wretch.  He wrote:

Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me.  

I once was lost but now I’m found,

Was blind, but now I see.
