Grace In Grief

There's grace in grief, Hallelujah 
O what glory in the Cross
Where Jesus Christ was lifted up
To suffer our deepest loss
And took sin's harshest penalty
And sealed it by His blood
To offer back His life as our Sacricice
Which was well pleasing unto God

Proof of God's acceptance was shown
In that He raised Him from the dead
Now a living hope is assured
Because of Christ our risen Head
And as Resurrection arose in glory
Hallelujah praise His name
For now whomsoever shall call upon Christ
Is never the same again!

Our only source of grace for Salvation 
One the other side He's awaiting
When our eternal breath begins
And Death is helpless to cause hesitating
Where forever we shall be...Hallelujah!
Because of our repentance and belief
There in the very presence of Christ our Saviour
The One who offers us grace in our grief!

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
