There's A Deep Satisfaction

There's A Deep Satisfaction

There's a deep satisfaction in knowing our God
Our source of all strength and all power
There's not one thing but what comes against us
He provides us with grace for that hour
And saturated with His love sealed by the Holy Spirit
When we become partakers of sufferings
In the midst of them He's always near it

What a treasure to rest in those arms
Of an ever present Father
Who when we think we cannot bear it
He takes us a little bit farther
And poured out grace soothes our spirit
He's here...our God is here!
And rest we do in that glorious truth
The good Shepherd is always near

Praise God for my Salvation

I bless the day of that transaction
For when I repented of my sin
His Spirit went into action 
And brought home to me the truth of it
My sins were all forgiven
And left me with a deep satisfaction of
I was eternally saved for heaven!

Not to muster up strength in myself
For that would be a disaster
But to find my strength in the Saviour
Who is my Lord and my Master
In the valleys of my life
The Lord has lifted me 
And has restored my soul to gladness
To live again triumphantly!

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
