Spirit Of God

Spirit Of God

Spirit of God come off those pages
And stir our hearts afresh
Help us to renew our first love
And hold Him fast to our breast
And recognize that there is none other
No...not such a Friend as He
Who took our sin upon Himself
And died to set us free

Nothing on earth could bring such solace
For our peace is Heaven sent
When we drew near to the Father
His ear to us was bent
And our sin upon our repentance 
Lost all of its drawing power
And faith extinguished  the fear of death
And love prevailed that hour

Lord I praise Thee, I praise Thee Lord
For now You're my Hallelujah 
Your Word brings such blessings to each heart
That attributes its writings to You
And the Holy Spirit that guided those men
To record what You wanted them to 
May He bring again a new freshness to life
And we'll give all the glory to You

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
