I Love To Live

I Love To Live

I love to live in the realm of worship
Just my God and I
Incorporated prayer and praising
Living the abundant life
For great and greatly to be praised
Our great God from above
Redeeming love like none other
There is no greater love!

Sin's forgiven hallelujah
What soul could not sing
For a heart made clean by Jesus
Now He's my everything
A No vacancy sign is hung out
In this soul of mine
He has filled me to the brim
His Salvation so sublime

Yes praise God I love to live
For He now lives in me
And what a joy now to embrace
What God has in store for me
With a love I never knew
Could ever ever exist
How could one spurn such love
And the love of God resist

O thank you Lord for a steadfast love
Which never shall diminish
Place a burden on my heart
Until my course is finished
To see some other's really see
There's life in the Crucified One
May today be a "new birth" beginning
In the life of someone!

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
