God Loves Our Praises 


 God loves our praises

 For it gives Him highest adoration

 For what great things He has done for us

 In His offering of Salvation

 Only one sacrifice for sin 

It was found there in the Lamb 

The Lord Himself having died for us 

Jesus Christ the Great I Am


 I'll praise Him on the mountain tops 

I'll praise Him in the valley

 I'll praise Him as long as I have breath

 I'll praise Him though He may tarry

 Although I know not the day or the hour

 I know He's coming back for me 

That's enough for me to rest in

 Amen praise God for Calvary 


The joy of the Lord is our strength

 He blesses us with rejoicing hearts 

We're heirs and joint heirs with Jesus Christ Who has cleansed each repentant heart

 Our value is of highest price

 Henceforth the sacrifice Supreme 

He who knew no sin became sin for us 

Hallelujah praise God...bless His name!


 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
