We Were Built For Singing Praises

We were built for singing praises
According to God's Word 
Where it says most emphatically
Let everything that has breath...let him praise the Lord
Now praise doesn't come naturally
There's something that must transpire
In the inner workings of our heart
To send our praises higher

There's a surrendering to the will of God
Before rejoicing can begin
For we'll never understand the depths of praising Him
Until we know His forgiveness for our sins
And when joy's floodgates know full release
Then there's joy!... there's joy like a river!
For when we come to Jesus Christ in true brokeness
We'll find in Him... the true Life-giver!

To the Cross! To the Cross!...swiftly now...
You know that you need to come
May you be moved by the Spirit of God
God the Father and God the Son
To embrace the truth of the Word
That knowing the Son shall make you free
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ today my friend
And live on rejoicingly!!!

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
