Amen The Old Hymns

Amen The Old Hymns

Amen the old hymns of the faith
Are still as fresh to me
As when I first heard them sung years ago
When the love of God was drawing me
And the Spirit brought it home to my heart
In such a glorious fashion
I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
Yes you can call me just old fashioned 

Just old fashioned Hallelujah I came
I came with my full baggage of sin
And found... praise God the removal thereof
When I first placed my trust in Him
I came to the fountain of blessing
And drank there a full supply
Now I'm singing most heartily
And shall still  in the sweet by and by

We can stay singing all night long
Would be such a delight to me
As visions of rapture fill my mind
Since my introduction to Calvary
So sing them over again to me
Such a refreshment to my soul
Singing  about the blood of the Lamb
That can make a sinner whole....

Hallelujah lI love those old hymns
They still are a blessing to me
I treasure them as my acquaintances
We both have a history
That day at the Cross when I first saw the light
And darkness just had to flee
O... praise God for the glory of it
The glory of Calvary....

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
