In Regards

In regards to God's love 
I plead guilty
I've accepted His great love for me
I acknowledged in my heart... that I was a sinner
And I believed that Christ died on Calvary
Then His grace came in like flooding waters
All my sin was washed...was washed away
I never knew such freedom in forgiveness
All the burdens of my heart were rolled away

Christ in me...my blessed hope of glory
His Resurrection... proves that I shall live
The fear of death has lost its grip upon me
The Spirit of God now aids me to forgive
The love of God how can this tongue describe it
My heart knows right well...the change that Jesus gives
Now I live with an eternal hope of Salvation
In full confidence because Lord Jesus lives

O there is a balm...there is a balm in Gilead
An ointment sure...the great Physician prescribes
Bring your heart...bring it with full repentance
And know your God...for He shall dwell inside
There's a hallowedness to those blessed Hallelujah's 
That sound forth...sound forth from a soul set free
Hallelujah for that Crucified Saviour
Hallelujah that He died for me

Great is the gift of our God's great faithfulness
Who came on a mission...on a mission to save
And clothed Himself...clothed Himself in humanity
As a servant to all...right up to the grave!
But that grave...was gravely ineffective
In could not keep...not keep God's love away
For an empty tomb still greets every seeker
And praise God the name..of Jesus Christ still saves!!!

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
