What Saving Grace

WHAT SAVING GRACE

What saving grace of Jesus Christ
God's mighty power placed in the Son
Victorious over our debt to sin
He rose again our Resurrection!
And now new life can be found
Repentance and faith our entry
Saved by grace alone
Abundant life for you and me

God's power revealed
To those who believe
The Holy Spirit bearing witness too
The act of faith on our behalf
Brings each saved sinner through
Now glory bound and Shepherded
By Him the great I Am
With peace and joy through sins forgiven
I can live as God had planned

O praise the Lord O hallelujah
Sings this soul now sanctified
Satisfied with Christ my Saviour
Who once was dead is now alive
O wayward one He finds you wanting
He knows your seeking for a way
Come unto that fount of blessing
For His blood washes sin away
For His blood washes sin away

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
