With Praise And Adoration

With praise and adoration
I offer up each day
A greatful prayer of thanksgiving
That I have found the Way
Now where He leads I follow
Safe in my Father’s hand
For Heaven has a home for me
In that sure and promised land

The world has lost its charm and value
I live on a higher plain
Knowing that the Lord Jesus Christ
He soon will come again
And rapture me in glorious wonder
My body will be glorified
Transfered from the mortal into the immortal
Praise God I am sanctified

My faith cannot be shaken
For I know the true world's Shaker
Who can make something out of nothing
And see that it endures forever 
So endearing is my Saviour
For He watches over me
And as a Shepherd leads His flock
My Lord is leading me!

No wonder Hallelujah's ring
In this old heart of mine
Forgiven for all of my past sin
Soon leaving this world behind
My bank account down here is meager
Compared to what I have up there 
For all of my riches are found in the Lord Jesus Christ
Who has wealth beyond compare!

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
