I've Landed On The Shores

I've Landed On The Shores Of Grace

I've landed on the shores of grace
And O what scenery
The Light of the world the Lord Jesus Christ
Now lives inside of me
Forgiveness and its full relief
From the weight of sin I had
Now I've a heart full of peace and joy
O saved and I'm glad!

God's Holy Spirit brought a Witness
To that divine transaction
That day I repented of my sin
And was found in God's satisfaction
The darkness that had held me fast
It had to flee away
When the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ
Cleaned up my heart that day

Wade in the waters of God's Word
There's a refreshing to be found
There's a deeper meaning to this life
When you know you're Glorybound
For that One who went before us
And who felt such trials here
Has given grace for our enjoyment
Praise God for that atmosphere!!!

Now I'm looking on with eyes
That have a better view
Because I know I've been redeemed
I must tell others too
There's a life beyond compare
And it's found in Christ God's Son
Look and live...my brother live!
And be saved by the Crucifièd One!

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
