Help Me Lord To Appreciate

Help Me Lord To Appreciate 

Help me Lord to appreciate
My new found faith in Thee
With the realization that the cost
Was a Cross at Calvary
Where Lord Jesus's precious blood 
Was shed on my behalf
Now praise God I am comforted
Through Him my Rod and Staff

Now worshipping is normalized
For Christ is my All in All
I cannot help but praise the One
Upon Whom my penalty fell
All of my sin collectively
Was nailed to the Cross
Christ paid in full the debt I owed
How glorious and marvelous!

For me He died... O hallelujah!
That I might live again
When my heart received that truth
True cleansing then began
And over me came waves of grace
Through the Spirit's witnessing power
I was saved...O glory hallelujah!
By grace through faith that hour...

Now with absolute assurance through God's Word
I became a child of God
Born again by His Holy Spirit
No longer condemned I stood
But freedom now reigned in this heart
Released from the shackles of sin
Now praises are directed to Him evermore 
As a sign of my deep appreciation!

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
