All I Can Say Lord

All I Can Say Lord

All I can say Lord is...wow!
Your Salvation has brought me much
When I repented of my sin
I felt the Master's touch
Your Spirit brought the Witness home
I was redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
And every sin that once stained my soul
Was forgiven...forgotten ..amen!

Somehow although I can't explain it
I knew the transaction was done
When I humbled myself there in prayer
I knew the battle was won
For faith had gained the Victory
I believed then I received
The gift of God...eternal life
Now this world I was ready to leave

But by the grace of God there went I
A sinner...lost and undone
Drawn to Christ by the wooing of the Spirit
Through the reading of God's Word...amen!
On those pages of Holy Writ
The truth became alive
And quickened my soul to righteousness 
Destroying  every fragment of pride

I saw myself as the sinner I am
Standing in the need of prayer
Dependent one hundred percent on You Lord
And casting on You every care
Not one iota of righteousness is mine
For mine they all are but dung
You are the thrice Holy the Lord Jesus Christ
In the office of...the Father...the Spirit...the Son

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
