What A Relationship

What A Relationship

What a relationship had Paul and Christ
A relationship like none other
To go from imprisoning followers of the Lord 
To become a faithful servanthood brother
He knew the depths of a heart of sin
That knew nothing of Christ's love 
Until one day on the road to Damascus
He heard the voice of the Lord

When God speaks...be sure to listen
For your name is on His list
His desire is to see you delivered
From the bondage that sin is
What a mighty Conqueror
May you sing redemption's song
There's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus
You sing.. and we'll join along

His eyes definitely saw God's Glory
The glory of the Lord
And set his feet to following the Saviour
Obedient unto the Word
Used of God to advance the gospel
And to do it so willingly
Now not only for his own sake
But so that we might be free!

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
