Let Us Pause

Let Us Pause

Let us pause to say an Amen
Let us pause to say praise the Lord
For what great things God has done for us
In the giving of His Word
For for the eyes of our understanding
It is written for us to be blessed
Oh for His so great Salvation
When the question of faith is addressed

Not an Author of confusion
Is our Father from above
There are not various ways to Heaven
Only one way...it's through Christ's love
Death has one sure Conqueror 
He proved it Himself by His life
He arose three days after His Crucifixion
When He who was without sin... became sin's Sacrifice

Let us pause to say an Amen
Let us pause to say praise the Lord
For what great things God has done for us
In the giving of His Word
They have tried to extinguish His writings
They have tried to dismiss its power
But God's Word shall last forever
For it will judge us at our reckoning hour

I love to hear its proclamation
Of its authorship I've been assured 
The Spirit can use it to bring Salvation
For Christ is the living Word
I've paused and I have praised Him
I've paused and I've said Amen!
For there's nothing that tops a relationship with God
When we become born again!

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
