God's Grace

God's Grace

God's grace covered my sin
When His mercy came flooding in
Simultaneously I felt His touch
Through the presence of the Holy Ghost
Just my God and I as witness
And a few million angels as well
Heaven became my realization
No longer a worry about Hell


Though I often had heard Hallelujah 
That day it became personal to me
For my Saviour paid the debt for my sin
Hallelujah!...Hallelujah!...Glory!
I knew I'd never be the same again
For I was transported to cloud nine
Only a sinner saved by grace
Can experience such a blessing divine

Many an old hymn has come to my mind
The songs that have led me to Christ
That lifted my soul to acknowledge His worth
The worth of His great sacrifice
You will never...never!...find such love
Other than in that Lord
Who stands ready!...ready to forgive
In spite of your sins record...

Don't leave it off until another day
Today your soul can be free
From the very prison of sins dominion
Praise God...to faith's victory
Hallelujah I have found Him
Praise God you can find Him too
Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
And you'll have a Hallelujah too!!

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
