Salvation...praise God!...Hallelujah 
Greatest gift God's given to men
In the humbling act of repentance 
Turning from sin and being born again
The Holy Spirit begins its indwelling
An internal sealing that we've been redeemed 
The fruit of the Spirit as outward evidence
That what we've believed is not just a dream 

The reality of the Cross of Jesus
Forgiveness poured out from Calvary
All of my sin He drank the cup for
God's wrath He endured for you and for me
We cannot leave off of the wonder of
That a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
With a love beyond all comprehension 
Died to provide power for our sins relief

Hallelujah...praise God!...my Salvation
Has drawn me closer to the Lord
With a spirit of genuine praise now
And an understanding of God's Holy Word
His light has come shining through
Praise God there's a brand new me
The presence of my Saviour Jesus Christ
Has guaranteed Heaven as my destiny

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
