Rejoice With Exceeding Great Joy

Rejoice with exceeding great joy
For the Comforter has come
For when Jesus Christ went back to Heaven
The Holy Spirit's job was begun
Now Christ could be everywhere present
His Spirit alive and well
Pointing men to the way of Salvation
Using the Bible to tell

To be born again by the Spirit of God
Is definitely life's most important transaction
For being forgiven upon our repentance
Brings one the utmost satisfaction
Christ in me my hope of glory
What a blessed hope it is
I can go to sleep at night
Knowing that I am His!

And I awaken with such a refreshment
Praise God I am alive
That You Lord for your so great Savation
And that it was for me you died
Make Your will... mine to follow
And to give obedience unto
For all that I am or ever hope to be
I owe it all O Lord unto You!!!

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
