You Knew We Couldn't Fix Ourselves

You Knew We Couldn't Fix Ourselves 

You knew we couldn't fix ourselves 
So You came to do the task
Our sin was insurmountable 
Our eternity at risk
So down you came in humbleness
To become my Deliverer 
And deliver us ...You did!...Praise God!
My God how great Thou art!

You walked amongst men with great love
Great grace and great mercy too
With great forgiveness in Your heart
To make us sinner's anew
And brand us with Your Holy Spirit
In the hidden heart of men
The day that we repent of our sin
And become sinner's born again

Your agenda has not changed
Nor have You changed as well
You are still seeking to save the lost
Our God Immanuel
Salvation as Your precious gift
A blest life for eternity
Upon saving faith in Jesus Christ
Whose truth can set men 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
