Music Is A Healing Balm

Music is a healing balm
As it washes over my soul
It can take me from the depths of sorrow
And make me feel completely whole
So many times my heart has been touched
By someone singing a song
And yes oh yes I have to admit it
I've found myself singing along

Praise God He's the music Maker
He knows the soul's need of joy
And puts a new song in our heart's 
Which our emotions can truly employ
For praise is so becoming
Just a natural result of Salvation
For we cannot but help to give praises back
Unto that One who our sins has forgiven

There will be a wonderful melody one day
The likes of which we've not yet heard
That will be sung when we get to Heaven
And we're in the presence of the Lord
That will be some glorious day
With every voice singing to perfection 
Giving forth praises unto our Saviour
Our life and our Resurrection!

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
