The Greatest Of Joy

The Greatest Of Joy

The greatest of joy you can have in this world 
Is having a personal relationship with God
Knowing that all of your past sin's have been forgiven
Washed and cleansed by the blood
A daily Companion to wade through the waters
That this life may bring unto you
Your destination... guranteed  now for Heaven
This is what Salvation will do for you...

To be saved and to know it praise God hallelujah!
Faith is the journey I'm on
He took this old... wretched heart of mine
And gave it a brand new song
I cannot stop praising the One who'll be raising
Every believer to life once again
In fact every time that that thought...crosses my mind
I say hallelujah...praise God!...Amen!!!

Joy on the journey rejoicing in Jesus
For there's not a Friend such as Him
Who in spite of my wavering
Poured out His blest favouring
And died on a Cross for my sin
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise God there I go once again...
For who wouldn't want to have a Saviour like that?!!!
Praise God! Hallelujah! Amen!!!

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
