He certainly took care of it by writing the lyrics to this song which millions listen to. Thanks, Cindy.
His name is John Newton and during one of his slave trading trips experienced a severe storm which led to his conversion. It is said he did not give up the trade immediately, but treated the slaves much more humanely. I read about his story and watched the movie Amazing Grace.

Amazing Grace
Someone told a joke which sort of puns this song Amazing Grace (hope you do not take offense for nothing could beat this wonderful Song). Here it is and maybe you have heard it before--

The dog Mace loved nothing more than eating grass. His master was very fortunate for he did not have to mow his yard. One day he confined Mace to the house. Some time went by and so too the grass grew up again. One night Mace got loose. That morning, the master was quite agitated that he had lost his wrench. But then he looked around him as he left the house and like the bishop of St. Juan Diego's time of Our Lady of Guadalupe who was not amazed by the falling roses in the wintertime but by the image on the tilma, the master who was a mechanic was astonished not by the mowed grass but the shinny object he saw on the now short grass which before was hidden by the tall grass. He raised his hands up to heaven and shouted out in song and prayer--"Amazing Mace, how sweet the hound that saved a wrench for me." smile
