There's A Thoroughness
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

There's A Thoroughness

There's a thoroughness to God's forgiveness

For He washes white as snow

Every sin that's ever haunted you

He can remove that stain also

And the life that He now provides

I can live it most abundantly

For it's Christ in me the hope of glory

Hallelujah I've been set free


Not just a pleasant memory

But day to day I enjoy

The presence of my Saviour now

Who guides me along life's way

And prayer is such an adventure

For faith is my new lifestyle

So glad I trusted in Jesus Christ

For He's put on my face a smile


I know not what tomorrow may hold

But I trust Him from day to day

He's always showed up when I needed Him most

His grace has been sufficient alway

What a strong arm is my Lord

I've felt His loving grip

He's held me up when I've been weak

He's never let me slip


His hands were nailed there for my sin

His feet were nailed as well

His side was pierced on top of that

The deliverance cost from Hell

And God Almighty as God the Son

Partook of the brunt of our sin

There's a thoroughness to God's forgiveness

Come and find your rescue in Him!

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
