Knowing You Lord

Knowing You Lord

Knowing You Lord is such a wonder
And I often wonder why
That men reject Your Salvation offer
And treat it as just pie in the sky
But we know the blessed preciousness
Of knowing You as Lord
And the substantiation factor
Of You being the written Word

Your Holy Spirit bears true witness to
The day that we first believed
Our names written in the Lamb's book of life
And the Holy Ghost received
Forgiveness at its deepest level
Forgiveness for our sin
What cleansing power in Jesus's blood
When we are born again

Fill my heart afresh for service
For we serve a mighty King
Who has given us a rejoicing Spirit
For He is Lord of everything
Lord of Heaven and Lord of earth
It's so easy to praise that One
Who took the sting of death away
By becoming our Resurrection

Quit you like men be strong
The victory already's been won
We have a flag of faith that is untattered
O praise Him the everliving One!
His love carries us on His shoulders
The kindly Shepherd that He is
He's constantly leading me in paths of Righteousness
You bet I shall follow Him!

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
