In The Hands Of God

In the hands of God I'm held
No safer place to be
Surrounded by an immense love
That flowed from Calvary
That felt the wounds of nail prints
A thorn crowned brow as well
Full of forgiveness. mercy grace
Who doeth all things well

The whole world with eyes to see
Oftimes see not this Christ
And with ears they have to hear
Reject that sacrifice
And miss out on the treasure found
The pearl of that great price
And seek a god of nothingless
Thinking that it will suffice

But there is no other God
Besides Him that we do know
Who can take the vilest sin
And wash it white as snow
From that fountain filled with blood
Each sinner can be freed
Whomsoever repents and believes
Truly will be free indeed

Thank you Lord for saving grace
And a Spiritual appetite
To hunger and thirst after Righteousness
It is my soul's delight
To recommend unashamedly
The way of the cross leads home
Come now to the arms of the Father
Who shall lead thee safely home!

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
