O I'm Safe

O I'm Safe

O I'm safe in the depths of His love
His grace washes over me
Sufficient each day for the evil thereof
Because of Calvary
No cleansing power like Jesus shed blood
The highest cost for my sin
Forgiveness now mine...O glory Hallelujah 
Since I've placed my trust in Him

Now from a fountain that never runs dry
I have a well-spring of life
The overflowing love of God
That frees me from harm and strife
A Spirit ever present to comfort my soul
Bringing the Word home to my heart
Leading me in the way of a life everlasting
O my God...how great Thou art!

I'm resting...I'm resting...praise God I'm resting
And trusting in Jesus each day
For I know Him who knows my tomorrow 
And walks with me along life's way
Faith is my foundation for this way of living
Praise God I have turned away from sin
Nothing compares to the love Jesus shares
When we repent and we have faith in Him...

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
