Thank You For The Enlightenment

Thank you for the enlightenment of Your Word
To reach our troubling heart's 
To show us the way of an eternal Salvation
That shall never from us depart
Bringing mercy and grace to life
As a Consoler of our sin
And spreading forgiveness through our veins
Being washed by the blood of the Lamb

Faith has a power of favour
When it's placed in Christ the Son
Who overcame although He died
Our proof?!!!...His Resurrection!
And in His life we can be blessed
For His Spirit dwells within
Every heart that has repented
And turned away from sin...

So thrilled that I have found Him
Who gave His life for me
The truth is there...written in God's Word
For every man to see
Put away every other thought
If you don't know Christ today
Find a quiet spot away from the world
Turn your heart towards God and pray

Father I have need of Thee
I'm in a restless place
I want the peace that passes all understanding
I want Your amazing grace
So here I am with my emptiness
Fill me Lord with your love
I sought to find answers to life here below
I neglected to find them above

Make Your Word alive to my soul
May Your Spirit reach my heart
As I read may my faith increase
Help me Lord in my fresh start
For You are mighty to deliver
For praise God You've conquered sin
And given us victory by faith in believing 
And by asking the Lord Jesus in!

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
