I Praise The Name

I Praise The Name

I praise the name of Jesus Christ
The lover of my soul
Perfect God and perfect man
A Completeness that I know
In Him I move and have my being
I know in whom I have believed
And there's a witness living inside
The Spirit that I have received

Now a consistent life of faith
A learning that's brought by prayer
I have an enjoyable fellowship now
For He's with me everywhere
And interceeding on my behalf
To the heavenly Father above
I'm encased by my Saviour each day
And encompassed by His love

O that precious name of Jesus
My foundation built on this
He is my Cornerstone of faith
This gives to me such bliss
My Resurrection and my life
O death where is thy sting
What a faith we have in Him
What greater cause to sing

So again I praise You Lord
Another day to live
And enjoy the benefit of Your presence
And know the love You give
May I seek to give away
The gift I have received
And share with others about eternal life
If they would only repent and believe!

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
