I am sold on that very fact
That Jesus Christ is Lord
I believe each account of Him
That is written in God's Word
First there came a touch of faith
Then it was full-blown
That He was God come in the flesh
I owned Him as my own

And Christ became my hallelujah
The Lamb for sinner's slain
The glory of God revealed in Him
All praise be to His name
Sin's forgiveness found a home
His Spirit lived within
My life now pointed in a new direction
I now lived for Him

And my Redemption fully secured
I knew now where I stood
What cleansing work of Jesus Christ
There's power in that blood
And the righteousness of God Himself
Became my righteousness too
And God was pleased when I believed
The angels I know were too

Praise God He gives us faith to believe
When we repent of our sin
A desire to turn from our wicked ways
Rates a ten from Him
So turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look, look and you will really see
Whereas old sin will keep you down
Faith gives the victory!

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
