I Love To Hear

I Love To Hear

I love to hear the testimony
Of those who come to Christ
Who found in Him Deliverance
And took to heart His sacrifice
Who owned their sin seriously
As to what it's penalty was
And repented with Godly sorrow
To own His worthy cause

Then to see their exuberance
As to what the Lord had done
Now their mission talking about
The Father, the Spirit, the Son
The Word to them most precious
As fresh manna from Heaven
Their sustenance for food and drink
Doctrine for daily living

Yes there's a joyful telling
From the heart of a soul set free
I love to hear their stories
About the cross of Calvary
How Jesus Christ the Friend of sinner's
Still has love to go around
And every soul that trusts in Him
So great Salvation has found!

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
