Praise God We Have A History

Praise God we have a history
And a geography as well
How You Lord began Creation
You doth all things well
And chose a particular people
To bring Salvation too
And blessed every nation in this whole world
Through the people You named the Jew

What a blessing bestowed upon
A nation that You've touched
And protected them with preserving power
Because You loved them much
And that nation shall endure
To see You as their King
And worship You as the risen Lamb
What rejoicing that will bring

What a historical moment
When Lord Jesus returns again
Can you find a people more happier
To that I say amen
The Messiah as He said He was
The Faithful and the True
Sitting on the Throne of David
Is He the Lord of you?

What a Day for those people
The Day of Salvation has come
Hallelujah's and praise the Lord shouting
No silence in any one
For great and greatly to be praised
The One who died for me
And praise God for the nation of Israel
Through the rich blessings we've received!

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
