Learn to Praise Thy God

Learn to Praise Thy God

Learn to praise thy God
And give Him salutation
He has made a way
To know so great Salvation
Bound and  pierced by nails
And hung there on a Cross
Yet in dying gave new life
To a thief of Paradise

Only God can give
A love of such a measure
And every single participant
Knows he's found true treasure
Forgiveness for our sin
He washed them all away
And by the cleansing of His Word
We can praise Him every day

I've learned to praise my God
And offer up thanks giving
Because it is through Him
That I enjoy abundant living
Praise God for that precious name
That name of Jesus Christ
None other name any sweeter sounding
Then who paid my ransom price

All glory to Thy name
For saving me from sin
And its fiercest penalty
The life of every man
But You Lord had redeeming power
You raise up from the grave
So gladly still I do proclaim
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

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
