Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #42 "Amazing Grace"

The Movie Amazing Grace is such so inspiring. I hope you enjoy is as much as we did.

This weeks challenge requirement was to get your inspiration from the song "Amazing Grace"
I choose the verse below from the Hymn.. It express the love that the Lord has for us.. If we do our part the lord will never fail us.. That is his promise..

Amazing Grace Hymn

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The world shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun refuse to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

Words by:

While I was researching this move I decided to read up on the author or the song. It's definitely worth the read... Quite amazing(no pun intended)
When ever I think of this song I can help but sing all the verses in my head.. What a great song to get stuck in your head... Eh! I added the little dove stick pin because of the "Peace" that it symbolizes.. In gods grace we can find peace in out lives by serving him...

Hope you all enjoy the movie..

Join us on the "Catty Cruise"

I just love your Amazing Grace card. I've sung this song all my life and have never seen this verse or some of the last ones you listed. I did know there was more than 3 verses. Love it.
