Above Every Name

Above Every Name

Exalted is my Saviour
Who came to earth to die
And lived a life exemplary
Not one sin would draw Him nigh
Obedient to His Father
In all He said and did
Above every name is Jesus Christ
I live because He lives

That name has saving power
He can save to the uttermost
Triune God of Heaven
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
None comparable anywhere
Above every name that name
Above every name is Jesus Christ
Forever He's the same

What's the highest name you have
To offer unto praise
Who can rescue you from sin
And give you cause for praise
From a foundation of forgiveness
You can forgive now too
Above every name is Jesus Christ
Has He found a friend in you?

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
