I Sing a Song
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I sing a song of jubilation 

Worthy is the Lamb

For He procured so great Salvation 

Christ the great "I Am"

And in my joy filled soul is ringing

That song of a soul set free

With a desire to tell another

Jesus died for me


Jesus died for me a sinner

On my way to hell

Without the knowledge that He loved me

Not knowing the gospel 

That God in love sent Christ to die

And to an early grave

So that I could have " new life "

My Saviour came to save


My Saviour came to save each sinner

That on Him would call

Who then who have the Spirit living

Inside of them as well

The Spirit that would give us guidance

And lead us to the Lord

This is how His followers know Him

By trusting in His Word


By trusting in His Word hallelujah

The foundation of my faith

I rest completely on " It is written "

Amen to the Lord's " thus saith "

To fellow brethren in the Lord 

I pray you'll sing along

For He procured " so great Salvation "

That's why we have a song!

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
