Faith's Transaction

Faith's Transaction 

Faith's transaction began a transition
When I first believed on Christ
Translated now from the kingdom of darkness
Into His glorious light
How could I know that the soul could contain
Such a joy and a peace within
How marvelous the grace of our loving Lord
When we accept His forgiveness for sin

The Angel's recorded my name up in Heaven
It was entered in the Book of life
Being born again by the Spirit of God
Salvation become my delight 
Now prayers of praise poured from this tongue
That never were spoken before
Thank you Lord for this so great Salvation 
Repentance and faith being the Door

Hallelujah what a Saviour
I cannot help but to sing
When Satan had me  bound  with sins fetters
Christ broke sins strongest chains
Now greater is He that lives within
For faith's won the victory 
I raise my heart's banner for Jesus Christ
That loved One who died for me!

Hallelujah what a Saviour
Now Christ is my everything
He is alive as my Resurrection 
I cannot help but to sing!
He is alive as my Resurrection 
I cannot help but to sing!

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
