Praise God For Faith's Foundation

Praise God for faith's foundation
By the written and living Word
God the Son as Jesus Christ
Through whom Salvation is secured
Sin!...man's greatest enemy
Has been dealt with on the Cross
Where the Lamb of God was sacrified
To become the Resurrection for us

And what a rising that was
To God be all the glory
Who put to death the thought that was
That death would end our story
Hallelujah what a Saviour
To show to Satan his sure end
Sure we were born unto sin
But praise God we can be born again

Born of the Spirit O Hallelujah!
There's triumph over the grave
And a Holy Spirit living within
Who guarantees that we are saved!
I love redemption's story
O tell it to me once again
How Christ came and died
for the sins of the world
And that He's coming back again

Living with that hope is glorious
And of being forgiven for my sin
I couldn't be any happier my friend
Since the day that I first trusted in Him
I pray that on your life's journey
That you'll be drawn to seek the Lord
Come know the One...the life giving Son
You will find Him in God's Word...

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
