Not Praise Him!

Not Praise Him!

Not praise Him?!!!...no way!
My praises shall never cease!'
For how could I ever stop praising the One
Who bought my sins release!
My sins accumulation?...massive!
Yet His grace forgave them all
His love settled it there for me...at Calvary!
When upon Him that day I called...

Not praise Him!...I beg your pardon!
His Holy Spirit now living within...
My Witness to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
That day I was born again!
His Word is alive I'll tell ya
And I'll tell ya rejoicingly 
For I've never felt so happier in my life
Then since when Jesus came rescuing me

When you're a drowning man you know it
You're gasping...you're gasping for breath!
When you know you are drowning in the waters of sin
And your ultimate station is death...
Then grasp the Hand that made the world
And still holds it in His Hands...
Not praise Him?!!!...no I shall ever...ever!!!
For for my Salvation He's planned!

How deep are your sin waters my friend
That you're wading in right now
Doesn't the stench of it bother you
Or will you still carry on anyhow
There's a Rescuer in the waiting 
You just have to call upon His name
With a heart desire to turn away from sin...
And you'll never be the same again!!!

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
