Lord You're Our First Responder   10:34 PM

Lord You're our first Responder
To our Salvation plight
You knew in the beginning Lord 
That we wouldn't get it right
We were frail in the flesh
Our soul's destiny at stake
You undertook in magnificant fashion
Our sin problem to brake

And what deliverance power
When all is done and said
You arose up from the grave
Although You were pronounced dead
And now we live in glorious fashion
Because of Your Resurrection
You did death and the overcoming of it
To a divine degree of perfection

Sin no longer was our master
Nor we a slave unto it
You alone delivered us from Hell
You saw our way right through it
Now happy campers on Your earth
Praise God You are our Master
Grace supplied for all our needs
It's freely there to ask for

In first Responder fashion
You were eager to save
Billions of lives in need of Salvation
And to have victory over the grave
My responses unto You...
I praise You...I praise You my Lord
For enabling me to enjoy finding You
When I sought You in the Word

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
