Let Jesus Christ Be Praised

Let Jesus Christ Be Praised

Let Jesus Christ be praised
For what great things He hath done
Who dealt with sin accordingly
And has the victory won
My assurance by His Word
With the witness of the Spirit
Whomsoever trusts in Christ
One day His voice we'll hear it

Our Shepherd paved the way
His blood our purifier
Sinless was our Lamb of God
Our Redeemer...Sanctifier
Now set apart for Him
To own His worthy cause
Because He lives we shall live
Death to us is just a pause

Then praise God in the presence
Of our King of kings
Surrounded at the Throne of Grace
Where the host of heaven sings
That new song God shall give
That never was heard before
To the honor and praise of the Son
With whom we'll live with forevermore!

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
