I Have An Immense Appreciation

I Have An Immense Appreciation 

I have an immense appreciation
For the love of God
Who's always ready and willing and able
To forgive those who treat Him roughshod
And has extended grace to offer
Upon their repentance day
And turn the tongues of those who've cursed Him
To now send praises His way

Now a new creation in Jesus Christ
Where faith has taken hold
No longer timid to share God's Word
But in that enterprise now bold
And fitted for their yonder home
Through God's blest righteousness
When you can live with a first class faith
Why settle for second best

And we shall rise again Hallelujah 
For the fear of old death is gone
Enjoying are we our so great Salvation
For He's given our heart's a new song
And faith has won the Victory
Through the Lamb who for sinners was slain
No wonder I could never praise any other
For Salvation is only in His name!

Has He raised your Hallelujah 
Or aren't you yet fitted for some verse
There's a joy unspeakable awaiting you
But you must put first things first
There's a God who's willing to forgive you
Foe every last sin you've done
If you want to know His blessing and favour
You will have to come to know the Son!

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
