The Faith Transaction's Done

The Faith Transaction's Done

The faith transaction's done
Praise God I am redeemed
Sealed forever by the Spirit
Because I've trusted in Him
The greatest transaction finalized
My soul has met its Master
And whenever I contemplate that
It's more than I could ask for

The dominion of sin diminished
Satan has met his match
Now we're under God's ownership
His Spirit shall hold us fast
With continual germination
Of the seeds of joy within
We're joyfully now rejoicing
Singing the wonderful hymns

My Faith Has Found A Resting Place
And then I Surrender All
Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus
My Father Planned It All
I Come To The Garden Alone
And yes...Sweet Hour Of Prayer
Then Constantly Abiding and
There's A Meeting In The Air

Tears of joy start welling up
When I hear those hymns of old
So many hearts have been ministered to
As their melodies sweetly unfold
So many decisions solidified
After the preaching of the Word
My own life a testimony to change
After some song was heard

Thank You Lord for hymns
You held them special as well
Where is the soul that cannot sing
Knowing its delivered from Hell
Translated from darkness to light
Praise God for this sinner's prayer
For When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder
Hallelujah I'll be there!!!!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
