Lord Your Name

Lord Your name is music to my ears
How sweet the sound of it
O how men have neglected to know
Of its awesome benefit
The only name that has power to save
Even though some men use it to curse with
Satan hates it the most of all people
But we are blessed with chapter and verse therewith

How blessed is that Lamb of God
Our great Sacrifice for sin
Who can wash us in His precious blood
And bring forgiveness's cleansing
Now we can freely sing
Not one armtwisting song
But the songs of deliverance because we're redeemed
And we can sing them all the day long

No need to call upon any other name
For there's only one name upon earth
That by believeing upon what He's done for us
Can offer to men a new birth
Born again by the Spirit of God
Not born of earth but from above
For God will implant His very nature in us
When we put our trust in the Lord

Joy in the deepest of sorrow
He giveth us songs in the night
He is the melody now flooding our soul's 
Praise God He's our Chiefest delight 
Whomsoever shall call upon His name
With repentance as its heart's destiny
Will know praise God!...of a forever rejoicing 
For the Son can make you free!!!

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
