Praise God For The Hope

Praise God for the hope of eternal life
My Rock and my Salvation
A Resurrected Saviour praise God
A light to all generations
Who gave of His blood to pay for my sin
So that I might be redeemed
I'm now reconciled hallelujah praise God
What a blessing to me it has been!

I'm resting in my hiding place
Safe in my Father’s hand
Where I am loved with a Righteousness 
In His faith is where I stand
All sufficient is His grace
He has supplied my every need
And every soul that has trusted Christ 
Has found Him a friend indeed!

This world has lost its hold on me
Praise God I'm Glorybound
Delivered from the bondage of sin
That so often held me down
Looking so forward too am I
To meet the One who died for me
When my last breath on earth transpires
My next is in 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
