I LOVE HIM MORE


 


I love Him more than anything


I've ever loved before


I never knew that love could be


The key to loving more


And in His love for me He gave


A written guarantee


I will never leave you and


Will never forsake thee


 


What wonder of wonders


That God loved me


So much He came down


To die on a tree


Simply amazing I can't express


All in spite of my sin......no less!


 


He loves us in our suffering 


His grace is with us then


He comes swiftly offering 


Compassion as  a Friend


The grace we need comes along side


And whispers in our ear


Fear not my dear child for


I am always near


 


What wonder of wonders


That God loved me


So much He came down 


To die on a tree 


Simply amazing. .I can't express 


All in spite of my sin. ...no less!


 


His gift of life is offered too


For each repentant heart


Take your place beneath the cross 


And He will do His part


You will receive new life from Him


Direct from heaven above


Then you will know as now I do


That wonder of His love


 


What wonder of wonders


That God loved me


So much He came down


To die on a tree


Simply  amazing. .I can't express 


All in spite of my sin. ...no less!

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
