Awake My Soul

Awake my soul to righteousness 
Give glory to the Lord
The Alpha and the Omega
The written and living Word
Who leads His children daily
The good Shepherd that He is
And when we walk in obedience
His blessed favor gives

His Holy Spirit...Comforter
Who lives within our heart
Guides us by the way of truth
And praise God...will never depart
Assuring us of Salvation
The very moment we believe
Gifting us with forgiveness's grace
And from condemnation relieved

O praise God for repentance
A broken and a contrite heart
A recognition of sins destruction
The blessing of a brand new start
O thank You Lord for Your so great Salvation
That You came to seek and to save
And hallelujah to remove the fear of death
For praise God You were raised!!!

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
