Forgiveness Knows

Forgiveness Knows

Forgiveness knows the sweet embrace
Of a loving Father
Who takes the prodigal in His arms
And with His love does smother
And puts back joy into the heart
Of one who could not sing
As two go walking hand in hand
Tis what forgiveness brings

Hallelujah what a Saviour 
Where sin has met its match
In the offering of love and forgiveness
It's what our God does best
And the Holy Spirit's indwelling power
That gives us a sound mind
We do not have a spirit of fear
For our Spirit is one of a kind

Forgiveness knows...O yes it does
It's a stamp of God's approval
When repentance takes effect
Sin's penalty takes removal
And all of our past receives its doom
To be held against us no more
Praise God for this so great Salvation
Who could ask for anything more!

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
