In the Person of my Saviour

In The Person of my Saviour

In the person of my Saviour
I have found my sweetest rest
As I've learned to cast my every care on Him
He's an ever present Friend
Who has never failed me yet
His love has brought me such a great Salvation

And still, still the wonder of it all
The Spirit's filling power
God revealed in Christ what Deity!
The written and the living Word
Appearing in human flesh
He was definitely with us glory be!

How sweet it is to trust in Jesus
For all of life's complications
Not a sin but that He was tempted too
Yet remained He faithful loving
The sinner but not the sin
His Resurrection power can see you through

Yes that deep, deep love of Jesus
Penetrating all we are
Sustenance with never ending grace
Hallelujah for the Cross of Christ
Lord I lift You up
Praise God one day I'll see Thee face to face!

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
