Our Great God And Our Saviour

Our great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ
Filled will amazing grace
Seeking each day with a yearning heart
For those who would trust Him and seek His face
Swift to give love and complete forgiveness
For transgressions done in the past
And offer up a so great Salvation
That will eternally last!

No half measure in His undertaking
For our life He gave of His own
And procured for us a complete redemption 
For for our sin He atoned
And wrought us a righteousness from Heaven itself
How worthy is the Lamb
Who has the power to change every heart
Who calls upon His name!

Don't leave off of knowing Him
Who can become your closest Friend
For He who can consume your sin of the past
Can give you grace to go forward again
To God be the glory...glory Hallelujah!
Praise God Salvation has come!
Repenting of sin and turning to God
Is how faith's transaction is done!

A done deal!... O Hallelujah!
To be saved and to know it!...Amen!!!
Asking the Lord to forgive you of sin
Is really where it begins my friend.. 
Your new chapter of life now...hallelujah!
Will have everything to do with the Son
Why do I say this my brother?!!!
For the Lord Jesus Christ is the soul saving One!!!

The angels record you faith's transaction
Where your name's written  in the Book of Life
A permanent proof of God's satisfaction
With the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ
What a joy to look forward too
Which sustains us everyday!
Though once we were lost... sunk in the mire of sin...
Now Lord Jesus has become our Stay!!!

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
