Come And Welcome Salvation

O Come And Welcome Salvation

O come and welcome Salvation
While the welcoming is here
For there's a Saviour calling
Come near...come near...come near
The sin-haps you've experienced
Where satan has tripped you up
Can be redeemed by the grace of God
Straight from the Master's cup

Taste the portion of new found bread
And drink from the living water
O hungry heart and thirsty soul
Enjoy Heaven's alma mater
For God's old school from the beginning
Yes...He's the great I am
The Alpha and the Omega
The Author of Salvation's plan

For by His divine invitation 
There's a banquet prepared by the Maker
And every soul that expresses repentance
Is guaranteed to be a partaker
King of kings and Lord of lords
The Highest of Royalty
Extends an offering hand of mercy
That acceptance depends upon thee

So come and welcome Salvation
While the welcoming is here
For there's a Saviour calling
Come near...come near...come near
The sin-haps you've experienced
Where satan has tripped you up
Can be redeemed by the grace of God
Straight from the Master's cup

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
