With A Deep Appreciation

With a deep appreciation of
The Love of God towards me
I give back praises to that One
Who died on Calvary
Not with a shallow glorying there
But with joy filled to the brim
Hallelujah what a Saviour!
Is my sweet refrain

The guilt of sin that I once carried
Was a burden to heavy to bear
When I found out that Christ would take them
I cast all of my burdens there
And now sure enough I'm forever sure
He took my burdens away
And filled me up with Himself
O what a happy day!

There's now not a day that goes by
But that i am not thankful for
Now that I have found a Saviour
Who truly I can adore
Who brought deliverence to my soul
To save a wreth like me
Hallelujah what a Saviour!
Evokes an amen from me!!!

How is it with your soul today my brother
Is your burden level up to snuff
Or are you almost at that point
Where you can say...enough is enough!
Why go through the agony
Of another day as a result of sin
Bring your burdens to the Lord 
And find sweet rest in Him!

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
