God Raised Christ

God Raised Christ

God raised Christ Hallelujah
He has raised Him from the dead
And now our hope is eternal
Through Him our living Head
And by God's Holy Spirit
His Word is my Surety
For it shall abide forever
And prove my faith in Thee

God raised Christ Hallelujah
This has become my song
It keeps the joybells ringing
Yes ringing all day long
When in a weakened moment
And discouragement does arise
God raised Christ Hallelujah
And victory again arrives!

God raised Christ Hallelujah
What burden there for prayer
For those who do not know Him
Are destined for despair
What joy found in forgiveness
To have sin's penalty removed
God raised Christ Hallelujah
Praise God we are His beloved!

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
