There Is a Power

There Is A Power

There is a power that can permeate
The very soul of men
And bring him to a wholesomeness
When he is born again
That makes him sense forgiveness
So experientially
And know beyond a shadow of doubt
That Christ has set him free

It's called a so great Salvation
And He's greatly to be praised
For He's the One Who died for me
And guaranteed that I'll be raised
No fear of death to taunt me
For I have been redeemed
It's a Salvation for all seasons
May Jesus Christ be esteemed

Sin can no longer defeat us
Praise God we can have victory
For we have God's Holy Spirit Himself
Living in you and in me
What a delight to know Him
Free from all envy and strife
Living in but above this world
Enjoying an abundant life

This is the way of the Master
We would do well to follow Him
Triumphing in the joy of the Lord
We find our strength in Him
Good news we offer to others
Repent, believe and be saved
Come and enjoy this so great Salvation
Who gives Victory over the grave!

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
