I Sing My Troubles

I Sing My Troubles

I sing my troubles away with joy
For I find my stength in the   Lord
Holding steadfast in my faith
For I'm trusting in God's Word
There's always a hallelujah near by
For my heart is full of His praise
And amen we have something to sing about
To sing about everyday!

The burden of sin has found release
When I cast all my cares upon Him
And the full fruition of forgiveness was felt
The day I repented of all of my sin
Light came into this darkened soul
And a hallelujah burst forth to proclaim
There's a God in heaven who came to earth to save
And Lord Jesus is His name!

My Creator became my Saviour 
God Himself became a man
And humbled Himself in a lowly fashion
That we might be born again
When you recognize the Father
And see Him as Christ the Son
Their attributes are one and the same
The hallelujah's and the praises are on!

I sing away my troubles with joy
For I know Who's living in me
My Resurrection and my Life
Praise God for Calvary
For" It is finished" was the beginning
Eternal joy come through the Cross
My redemption complete praise God hallelujah
His songs are deliverance for us!!!

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
