God Intervenes

God intervenes in our lives
By turning fate to faith
And drawing us to believe on Him
Before it is too late
What a great and loving God
To love the sinner so
To extend an invitation such
"Come and be made whole"

Hallelujah what a Saviour
God in human flesh
Gave His life in sacrifice
For His world to bless
And sins onslaught to weak to render
Too our Lord defeat
For up from the grave He arose
His followers to meet

And greet He did He did indeed
And proved Himself His worth
This indeed was the risen Christ
The Author of " new birth"
And saints still sing their songs of victory
For He is Lord of all
And offering still "so great salvation"
To whomsoever on Him shall call

So cast thy burden on the Lord
For He is mighty to save
Don't let your sins taunt you such
And take you to your grave
But arise! Awake from thy sleep
Seek His righteousness
Repent today of thy sin
Be sure our God will bless!

For great is the faithfulness of our God
His Word is ever True
You do your part to seek the Lord
He will see you through
Let heaven bring you holiness
And give you just a taste
You will see that the Lord is Good
And to Him you will make haste!

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
