Permanent And Personal

Permanent and personal is Jesus Christ my Lord
My Salvation Hallelujah is Holy Spirit secured 
And God my Father superintended
His love for my soul
By bringing me to an understanding
Of His Word that makes one whole

Little by little His truth became
The means where I saw the Light
The darkness by which I was encased
Was soon to take full flight
For faith took hold in application
I repented and I believed
Praise God for that wonderful moment
When the Lord Jesus Christ I received

Baptized by the Holy Spirit
I became a child of God
So thankful I was obedient too
Believe on Him when I did
His Spirit bearing witness with my spirit
In an identification divine
My name written down in the Lamb's Book of Life
Signed there on the dotted line

Now when the roll is called up yonder
I know that I'll be there
I'll be present at the Throne of Grace
For that meeting in the air
And I'll be singing with the choir
The new song of the redeemed 
So thankful to have known the Word of God
And from it the truth's I gleaned

Am I satisfied?...Hallelujah
I am
For I know my destination
All because of the understanding of
My God's so great Salvation
To have sin's removal as permanent
Praise God yes it shall be!
Through a religion? No praise God!
But Jesus up close and personal to me!

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
