The Only Hope For Man

Praise God for our Saviour
Who loveth like none other
Who reigns in eternal majesty
And died for you my brother
Hallelujah for His Resurrection 
To the grave He was not bound
No! It could not hold Him
For His destination was Glorybound

He ascended into Heaven
With the Angel's witnessing thus
And they gave affirmation too
That at this time it was a must
As well they prophesied His return
That it would be in like manner
Praise God for this written record
It upholds the gospel banner

Yes Hallelujah for the Cross
The only hope for man
There is Salvation in none other
For it was God's eternal plan
All of the damnable atrocities 
That stem from the root of sin
Praise God one day a full deliverance 
To those who've trusted Him

Praise God it's still available 
As long as men have breath
Upon repentance and faith in Jesus Christ 
We can have victory over death!
For He our Hallelujah...Hallelujah!
Is coming back again
To raise us up with Him to Glory
The only hope for man!

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
