God Has Shown

God has shown His Salvation
In the person of Jesus His Son
The most glorious gift from Heaven
To live with our Father above
And faith has become the true entrance
Faith in Him... The Truth, Life, and the Way
Redemption in all of His glory
The Lord Jesus put on display

And on that cross of Calvary
Jesus paid it all
His death become my way of life
What wonder of it all
My sins, your sins, the sins of the world
All placed upon Him there
The Lamb of God our sinless Saviour
O how much He cared

Lord praise You for Your glorious Light
That reveals to us our sin
And leads us to that quiet place
Where we put our trust in Him
We may go to sleep at night
But a Resurrection morning is coming
This gets my soul to praising
And my lips a humming

Thankful Lord to You am I
That You came looking for me
And You had a full and complete supply
Of grace that could set me free
And here am I still rejoicing
For what You did that day
When I believed on the Lord Jesus Christ
My sins were washed away

And purposeful living began new life
Because of my faith in You
I saw eternity as a present possession
I knew it through and through
The Holy Spirit as my Companion
He's with me everyday
I think I have expressed that treasure
What more is there to say!

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
