Nothing But Grace

Nothing but grace...how amazing
It was there for me all of the time
And I never knew it until I read God's Word
That Christ's saving grace could be mine
What a moment when that realization 
Dawned upon this sinner's heart
I was smitten to the core of my being
My God...how great Thou art!

Love dispensed in willingness
He died the just for the unjust
Although we deserved God's  wrath for our sin
He took sin's fullest payment for us
It took a crown of thorns...
It took a Cross of agony...
The shedding of His own precious blood
To obtain our liberty...

He never answered back with vengence
But kept Himself under full restraint
The love of God in Jesus Christ 
On His character...not one taint!
He hands extended me mercy
And His hands extended me grace
How could I refuse such a Saviour
Who offered me such an embrace

Now close to Him I am walking
My Saviour constantly at my side
He will never leave or forsake me
Hallelujah!...praise God!...He abides!
With my soul it is well...it is well!
I'm living on forgiveness's plain
I'm now enjoying an abundant life
And I'll never be the same again!

Saved by grace through faith
By Christ's death there at Calvary
When I saw myself for the sinner I was
He reached out His hands for me
His grace has been more than sufficient 
I'm enjoying it everyday
There's nothing to compare with His so great Salvation
Find your's in Him today!

There's a depth to God's redeeming love
Come and plunge in today
Drink to the full of Salvation's Cup
Let Jesus Christ be your Stay
He has power for your transformation
Let Him transform your life today
From the Kingdom of darkness unto His glorious Light
Grace will lead you all the way!

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
