An Expression Of Saving Faith

An Expression Of Saving Faith

An expression of saving faith
Is joy and peace and love
Having been forgiven of our sin
We can fellowship now with God
And prayer remains a constant
For in prayer we made our peace
Asking the Lord to save us
Who from sin has given relief

There's evidence in our demeanor
We are new creatures in Christ
So thankful for our so great Salvation
Because He's paid our ransom price
With a new passion now for living
For we're assured of our destiny
To tell others of the love of God
Poured out at Calvary

What wonderful grace of Jesus
Upon acceptance of faith in Him
His Spirit giving me assurance
That the Lord now lives within
My God, my Lord, my Conqueror
My Truth and Resurrection
Today just a sinner saved by grace
One day it will be perfection!

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
