Samuel Medley, who wrote the text for this hymn, was born in Cheshunt, England, in 1738. He practiced sinful and profane ways until his leg was wounded in a naval battle which led him to pray. When his prayer was answered, he repented and lived for the Lord. Latter-day Saint Lewis D. Edwards wrote the melody we now associate with this hymn.
