My Light and My Salvation

MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION 


 


My Light and my Salvation


Is found in Jesus Christ


The "Hope" for every nation


For He has paid the price


My Saviour took the world's sins


And in His sinless state


Became the perfect sacrifice


To cure each sinner's fate


 


What recommended message


The Son can make you free


Repent, believe in Him today


You'll rejoice so gloriously 


For when you have Salvation


You will want the world to know


That He who shed His precious blood


Can cleanse a guilty soul!


 


Not preaching a religion here


But a pure relationship


One testified too by the Spirit


Which proves His ownership


For in the Son we find the Father


He is the only Way


My Light and my Salvation


Trust in Him today!

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
