4-4-6/4-4-6 compound meter In hymnological terms, it's in Common Meter, commonly marked 8 6. 8 6 and abbreviated CM in a hymnal. Common Meter has a strong history in chur…ch and folk music, and a great many plainsong hymns are in this meter. We are today more familiar with such CM hymns as 'O God our help in ages past' and 'In Christ there is no east or west.' The iconic 60's pop-rock tune 'House of the Rising Sun' is also in Common Meter. You can sing 'Amazing Grace' to it. Better put, Amazing Grace is in 3/4. [3/4 is the time signature, not the meter.]
The words were written by ex-slave trader John Newton, who was born in London on 24 July 1725. His father was commander of a merchant ship, and young John followed in his …footsteps. After his father died, Newton joined the crew on the H.M.S. Hartwich, but deserted after he found the living conditions deplorable. He was recaptured, flogged and demoted from midshipman to common seaman. After this, Newton spent some time on a slave-trader's ship, learning the trade, and eventually commanding his own trade in slavery. His conversion occurred during a violent storm at sea on 10 May 1748. From then on, he was a changed man, ultimately leaving his sea-going days behind him, and studying to become a minister. He was ordained by the Bishop of Lincoln and given the curacy of Olney, Buckinghamshire. "Amazing Grace" was written whilst he was at Olney, most probably between 1760 and 1770. He could now understand that God's love is for every man and Jesus had paid the price through his death on the cross for every sin he had ever committed. Incidentally, Newton did not write the music, only the words. The origin of the music is unknown, and there have been several speculations about the music. One is that it might have been based on a melody sung by the slaves themselves. Newton and William Wilberforce eventual prevailed in seeing that slavery was abolished in the British empire in 1833, 32 years before it was finally abolished in the United States in 1865 by the 13 Amendment.

The definition of Grace is 'an unmerited gift.' Amazing means so great that it is beyond imagination. Combined, the term amazing grace is referring to salvation and what… an incredibly wonderful gift it is because we really do not deserve salvation.

There are many sites where you can find lyrics & chords to Christian songs. I find "tabcrawler" to be a pretty good site for both secular and Christian music. Or you try to ju…st google "Christian song chords", and then follow the instructions.
When it was originally written, it is unknown what music, if any, accompanied the verses written by John Newton. The hymnbooks did not contain music and were simply small book…s of religious poetry. The first known instance of Newton's lines joined to music was in A Companion to the Countess of Huntingdon's Hymns (London, 1808), where it is set to the tune "Hephzibah" by English composer John Jenkins Husband. Common meter hymns were interchangeable with a variety of tunes; more than twenty musical settings of "Amazing Grace" circulated with varying popularity until 1835 when William Walker assigned Newton's words to a traditional song named "New Britain", which was itself an amalgamation of two melodies ("Gallaher" and "St. Mary") first published in the Columbian Harmony by Charles H. Spilman and Benjamin Shaw (Cincinnati, 1829). As neither tune is attributed and both show elements of oral transmission, scholars can only speculate that they are possibly of British origin. "Amazing Grace", with the words written by Newton and joined with "New Britain", the melody most currently associated with it, appeared for the first time in Walker's shape note tunebook Southern Harmony in 1847.
No. The man who wrote Amazing grace was english. His name was John Newton.
I am pretty sure you would be able to buy the Amazing Grace sheet music at Yamaha..
Amazing Grace, ¿cómo es dulce el sonido, Que salvó a un miserable como yo. Una vez se perdió, pero ahora se encuentra am, Era ciego, pero ahora veo. T'was gracia que le en…señó a mi corazón para que tema. Y Grace, mis temores alivió. Qué preciosa la gracia parece La hora en que empezamos a creer. A través de muchos peligros, trabajos y trampas Ya he venido; ¡Es la gracia que me trajo a salvo hasta el momento y la gracia que me llevará a casa. El Señor ha prometido bueno para mí. Su palabra asegura mi esperanza. Él será mi escudo y ser parte, Mientras la vida dura. Sí, cuando esta carne y el corazón se consumirán, Y de la vida mortal cesará, Voy a tener dentro del velo, Una vida de alegría y paz. Cuando hemos estado aquí diez mil años Que brillaba como el sol. No tenemos menos días para cantar alabanzas a Dios Que cuando hemos empezado primero. Amazing Grace, ¿cómo es dulce el sonido, Que salvó a un miserable como yo. Una vez se perdió, pero ahora se encuentra am, Era ciego, pero ahora veo. -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------

With some exceptions almost all songs have some story line or plot content. The narrator of Amazing Grace cites the various, manifold benefits of Divine Favor, and one of them… was cure of his ( possibly temporary) Blindness. ( Twas Blind, but now I See) if you follow the plot line it appears to be a sort of musical biography or autobiography of Saint Paul, and is entirely consonant with Paulist theology. The song was written by a man named Newton ( not the scientist).
