God Came Through

GOD CAME THROUGH 


 


God came through and brought me His Salvation


He took my sin and put it far away


To be remembered. ..never again hallelujah 


Replaced it with His Spirit as my Stay


 


I was lost..what darkness did surround  me


No ray of light to lead me in the way


My sin held fast. ..threatening still to drown me


From waking time until the end of day


I struggled on living with despairment


Where to turn to find relief from pain


Not a help was near to give me freedom 


I never knew freedom was in a name


 


When your lost.. you might not even know it


Is your heart..full of guilt and shame


No answers for what you think you're needing


Everyday things still stay the same


You try somethings to alleviate the problem


But it's futile...you're back to square one


Trying again yesterday's allurements 


They won't help you..no not a one!


 


God loves you and longs for your Salvation 


He'll take your sin and put it far away


To be remembered. ..never again hallelujah 


Replace it with His Spirit as your Stay 


 


Lord Jesus took...the penalty for our sin


He took God's wrath and bore it willingly


To bring forgiveness for our hearts 


enjoyment


To know the truth..and thereby make us free


My freedom found... in that name of Jesus 


On whom I called when I first believed


Yesterday..today...the same He is forever


I pray today...that you will Him receive


 


God came through and brought me His Salvation 


He took my sin and put it far away 


To be remembered.. .never again hallelujah 


Replaced it with His Spirit as my Stay

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
