Graced By God

Graced by God to believe on Christ
And have saving faith in Him
And then to top it off as well
To have forgiveness for all my sin
And His Word with enduring power
For it shall never pass away
With an anchor holding to the Solid Rock
The Lord Jesus Christ my Stay

I sing the tunes of Redemption's songs
For (praise God) I have been redeemed
And my highest praises now are for
That name which above all is esteemed
That name at which every knee shall bow
That's right! Every knee shall bow no less
Then the words! "Jesus Christ is Lord! "
Shall from every tongue confess

Praise God to know Him as my Saviour
Now trusting in His Righteousness
Being indwelt by the Holy Spirit
Now a vessel that God can bless
And being obedient unto His will
Repent...or ye shall likewise perish
That I repented and believed on Him
Is a decision I'll forever cherish

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
