Lord You Are To Be Praised

Lord You Are To Be Praised

Lord you are to be praised
And praised continuously 
For your bountiful mercy unto us
Because of Calvary
You took our penalty for sin
When you had none of your own
Loved us with an everlasting love
And will lead us safely home

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
His power is never diminished
He proved it  Himself in rising from the dead
A testimony to His..."It is finished!"
He knows the end from the beginning 
And the beginning unto the end
There is none other as a comparison
Praise God He's the sinner's  Friend

Let His love embrace you
Find Him in the Word
Death has no authority over Him
For He is the living Lord
Arise my soul and glorify
Praise Him the King of kings
Praise God Christ Jesus is Lord of all
Let heaven and nature sing!
Praise God Christ Jesus is Lord of all
Let heaven and nature sing!

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
