Raised To Walk

Raised To Walk

Raised to walk in newness of life
He is my Resurrection
Alive in Him the Lord Jesus Christ 
Who did Salvation to perfection
And every sin...past, present, and future
For them His blood was sufficient
What sacrifice...the Lamb of God
His desire that none should miss it

A simple faith is all that's required
Humbled as a child to receive Him
A belief in His Word to be reconciled
And know the joy of being forgiven
A turning away from sin in our lives
And with an honest heart turning to God
A godly repentance His grace will supply
The Spirit making it all understood

In recognition of His great love 
My soul has kept on the telling
The wonderful story of Christ's Salvation
With the Spirit's continual indwelling
There's a new passion birthed within
And of it I shall ever talk
I've found a Friend O such a Friend
Since I've been Raised To Walk!

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
