Saved!.... I love that word
It means so much to me
My identification with Jesus Christ
The Man of Calvary
For when I was convicted of my sin
How it would lead me to the grave
Praise God I repented and called upon Him
I knew then that I was saved

Saved!... I love that word
I found true refuge there
It introduced me to a brand new life
A life of heartfelt prayer
A life that I never knew existed
But now was one that I craved
Praise God I repented and called upon Him
I definitely know I'm saved

Saved!... I love that word
What assurance to my soul
Without a shadow of doubt I know
He made me completely whole
What glory there is in the Cross
His presence has always stayed
Praise God I repented and called upon Him
I trust too you will be saved!

Saved! .... Saved! ... Saved!
Hear ye the clarion call
The Lord is at the door of your heart
Can you hear Him at all
There's a floodgate of love awaiting
It must not be delayed
Remember whomsoever shall call
On the name of the Lord shall be saved!

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
