Praise God There's A Spirit

Praise God There's A Spirit

Praise God there's a Spirit
That's living inside of me
And He's alive as all get out
I know it absolutely
He bares witness with my spirit
That I have been redeemed
And was witness to that glorious day
When in Christ I believed

Now I can live above this world
Even though I'm living down here
For I'm seated in the heavenlies with Christ
It's written in the Word
And steadfastly am I held
I'm in my Father's Hand
Now Satan has no claim on me
For I've been born again

Praise God I am born again
I was obedient to the Lord
When He said... Ye must be born again!
Praise God I really heard
If you have ears to hear let them hear
If you have eyes let them see
Continue on in the procedure of faith
And brother you'll be free

I love to tell the story
By mouth or by the word
You haven't gotten the best of news
If His story you've never heard
Let this overflowing heart
Introduce you to that One
Who alone can deal with sin
Behold Him! God the Son!

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
