.I’d become an ally of William Wilberforce, who’d gecome the leader of the Parliamentary campaign to abolish the African slave trade. I always remember William liked to sing one of my hymns. It was Faith's Review and Expectation," which has come to be known by its opening phrase, "Amazing Grace" and it was first performed in 1773.
I thank the Lord I lived to witness the culmination of a campaign which transformned the lives of millions - the British passage of the Slave Trade Act 1807 in Parlament.
