God You Love To Bring

God You Love To Bring Us Grace

God You love to bring us grace 
And rescue us from sin
Even though we may not know
How much we're involved therein
You have Your way of showing up
And bringing conviction's pain
To remind us of our waywardness
And that we must be born again

Your Word has made it very plain
As to the consequences of sin
And it gives us a real eye opener
As to the judgement that it brings
And in Your love and mercy Lord
By the usage of the Holy Spirit
You draw us by the ministry of Your Word
That we might truly adhere to it

Death truly has a definite cessation
We are certainly aware of that
Neither has it respect of age
That's another well known fact
We all will die but live again
Because the Lord has arose
Those who believe to everlasting life
But eternal damnation to His foes

Lord You have blessed with saving faith
Those that trust in Your Word
You drew them by the grace of God
Until what they heard was understood
Where the seed of faith took root
And was firmly planted there
Watered by Your precious Word
And seasoned Lord with prayer!

Grace praise God...what a gift we have
In knowing Christ the Son
And having Him as our Mediator
The all sufficient One
Who in love went to the Cross
To pay the penalty for my sin
And rising again as proof thereof 
That we all will have a Resurrection!

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
