Awesome And Then Some

Awesome... and then some
That's what my God means too me
For the love He poured out on my behalf
That day at Calvary
His completion of my Salvation
Hallelujah for the Cross
When I repented from sin and believed on Him
I gained greater than I'd ever lost

His grace greater than all of my sin
His forgiveness through His power of love
What a wonderful transformation occurred 
When I placed my trust in the Lord
There's a rest in my soul
that I never knew could exist
And a joy that's held fast to my heart
What a blessing to know the Lord Jesus as my Friend
And to know He shall never depart!

Awesome... and then some
That's what He means to me
For I shall never tire of hearing that name
Who over sin can give sure victory!
Praise God for that Lamb of God
That Lamb who for sinner's was slain
Awesome...and then some
Hallelujah for Jesus Christ's name!

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
