The Simplicity Of Salvation

God hasn't made it hard For anyone to believe
Even a child can understand
And have their soul relieved
Faith is the answer of hope
By trusting in God's Word
For whomsoever shall call upon the Lord
Will know that their prayer is heard

I've heard many a testimony
Of children saved in their youth
Who believed every word in the Bible
As if it were gospel truth
And responded with a willing heart
That was ready to accept the Lord
And proved it by the life they've lived
To do service unto God

God loves a trusting heart
That will acknowledge that it has sinned
And truly seeks repentance
And puts their faith in Him
He's not an author of confusion
But knowing that the truth shall set men free
Offers us a hope through the living Lord
That we might enjoy eternity....

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
