When Grace Is Received

When grace is received...O glory Halllelujah
The Spirit with a gentleness of power
Bears witness with our spirit we are a child of God
Faith's evidence is revealed on our believing hour
And holy, holy, holy
We taste of God's righteousness
We've never felt such cleansing power as this
We know that we've been changed
And there is no doubt about it
Our heart's begin their praise of thankfulness

Grace received...O glory Hallelujah 
I cannot stop the joy within I feel
All my sins forgiven...yes!...every last one of them
Beyond a shadow of doubt I know this grace is real
And love experienced as such
has no other mentor but our Father
Who gives His love and pours it out lavishly
Grace received upon repentance    
and believing
All because of the Christ of Calvary

Grace received...O glory Hallelujah 
Death has lost its power over me
I have eternal life as my present possession 
I know where I'll be spending eternity
I look at things so much differently now
I see them now... in the light of the Cross
The gifting of Salvation available...O glory Hallelujah 
Come receive His grace for He's come to save the lost!

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
