I've Placed My Faith

I've Placed My Faith

I've placed my faith in Jesus Christ
Whose firm foundation is
For all the power in both Heaven and in earth
Are completely!..Completely  His
His love enduring has no limit
He loves to the uttermost
In mininistry of companionship
With the Father and the Holy Ghost

Far above our thoughts or ways
There's Providence in the making
God had to deal with our sin
And in a divine undertaking
He sent His Son to an old rugged Cross
That He might be lifted up 
As the greatest name that the earth ever heard
To become our Salvation's cup

Come drink today of His supply
His grace is freely flowing
When you repent and turn from your sin
His fellowship you will be knowing
Don't get caught up in a religious search
There's only life in the Crucified Son
Look and live!...my brother live!
For He's the hallelujah making 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
