It's All about God

IT'S ALL ABOUT GOD


 


It's all about God hallelujah 


It has nothing to do with me


My part, is acknowledging my sinfulness 


His, is to set me free


Repentance and faith in Lord Jesus


My gain because of His loss


Sufficient His grace for me daily


And it's all because of the cross


 


What cross! That blessed cross of Jesus


Poured out for me, His precious blood that day


That I could know,  a life that's  everlasting 


Through Jesus Christ,  the Life, the Truth, the Way


Sin's stranglehold had left me lost in darkness 


I had no Light I didn't know the Way


Then Truth revealed, Himself to me as a Person


Now my delight is trusting Him each day


 


No barrier now between my God and I


Sin's wall of partition dismantled by His love


He drew me in, unaware of how He'd bless me


I am amazed , He watches from above


Is your heart now, looking for some answers


Why you're  here, and what your purpose is


Then my friend call upon the Saviour


In Him you'll find genuine love and bliss


 


What blessed cross, heaven's highest honour 


Bestowed on Christ, who took sin's penalty


And brought redemption , to us fallen sinner's 


Who trusted iHim, praise God, now we are free


I love Thee Lord, each day my soul is hungry


To feed on Thee, the true and living way


My bread my water, my life that's everlasting 


You're all I need, You satisfy each day


 


Place on my heart continued contemplation 


Soul's are dying, we've a job to do


Can we leave off, the story of salvation 


That gave "us" life, and is offered for them too


My song of joy, be it all of Jesus


Who makes the heart, sing joyous songs of praise


Sweet the melody, of soul's who've met the Saviour 


"Forgiver" of sin's and "Victor" over the grave!


 


Oh hallelujah,  there is balm in Gilead


To heal each soul that's been hurt by sin


The "great Physician" bestows upon each sinner 


Sufficient grace when they trust in Him


Oh Calvary's cross, may we find it's treasure 


Pardon secured, "paid in full" decreed


By that precious blood of Jesus 


In Him we have, everything we need!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
