Joy And Rejoicing

Joy and rejoicing are in my heart
For there have I hid Thy Word
It has become my meat and my drink
And a wonderful Salvation It's assured
A rock solid faith based upon the Rock
Remember...the stone was rolled away
And Christ was not there
For He had arisen
What a glad and what a glorious day!

Joy and rejoicing are in my heart
For now the Holy Spirit lives within
With a constant Companion such as He
I can now have victory over sin
Faith has birthed a new fear of God
His Righteousness the cloke I now wear
Put a guard before my mouth that I would not utter
One word that would disappoint You here

Joy and rejoicing are in my heart
Hallelujah...Praise God...Amen!
There's a new song ringing deep withing
Because I've been forgiven my sins
With a joy unspeakable and full of glory
My insides now know a new me
For I've been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
It cleansed as it washed over me!

Joy and rejoicing are in my heart 
For now the joy of the Lord is my strength
I'm standing strong in His power and might
And will continue to do so at length 
For Christ will never leave or never forsake me
A promise based upon God's holy Word
Have I not a Rock solid faith or what?
Of that my friend...I'm most definetly assured!

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
