Grace Paved The Way

Grace Paved The Way

Grace paved the way for me
Along my pathway of sin
It brought me to a true conviction
And I became born again
The Word of God was packed with truth
How little of it I knew
But when I acknowledged my need of Christ
It was grace that brought me through

When I was saved by grace through faith
The Spirit came for a visitation
Now He lives in my heart forever
So thankful am I for Salvation
It's not just an eat, drink, and be merry life
That's not what life is all  about
But when you've experienced forgiveness for sin
Brother you can't help but to shout

Now I'm on my way to Heaven
To a land that is fairer than day
And Jesus Christ is my hope everlasting
For praise God Christ is the Way
How I long to meet my blessed Saviour
And thank Him one day face to face
For the wonderful love He afforded to me
To this sinner saved by grace!

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
