Praise You Lord

Praise You Lord who can free the heart
From sin's captivation
And can make a brand new me
By faith in Thy Salvation
And give a hunger for Righteousness
That was hitherto unknown
I've tasted and seen that the Lord is good
What an honor for Him to own

There's a guaranteed satisfaction
In the soul that knows it's God
That's been refreshed by grace through faith
And has believed upon His Word
Who have experienced His forgiveness
And now praise God can forgive
And offer up the voice of Hope
Look and live my brother live!

Praise You Lord for a Father's love
Of unconditional giving
The only merit for the receiving of such
Is that we quit from sinning
So here I am with all of me
Needing Lord all of You
I hereby welcome You into my life
For I know You'd want me to!

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
