Gladly Receive

Gladly receive the Word of the Lord
Come draw nigh to Him
He will give you true revelation
Of the reality of sin
And the consequences it festers
To bring you down to Hell
But praise God for that blessed Saviour
Who doeth all things well

And what we think is insurmountable
God can see you through
For He took our sin upon Himself
To make a brand new you
We have a heart with power to will
Will you or will you not
Repent of sin and trust in Jesus
You can do it on the spot

Today if you will hear His voice
Then turn to Him and pray
God I deserve your out poured wrath
But Christ died as my Stay
So to You Lord I come... I come
My sin now understood
Which separated me from You my God
For Thou art only Good

So on my knees in heart and presence
Here at Your Throne of Grace
Lord I confess my waywardness
And humbly seek Thy face
My darkness turned to dawning Light
Praise God I'm a soul set free
A sinner saved by the grace of God
Praise God for Calvary!

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
