According To The Word Of God

According to the Word of God
My sins can be forgiven
God Himself providing the Way
By the which we can go to Heaven
His Holiness is our righteousness
Hallelujah for the Lamb
Who superintended a so great Salvation
Through Jesus the Great I Am...

He owned my sin as if it were
His own sin for my sake
Though yet He knew no sin Himself
His burden bearing was great
For the sins of the whole wide world
His death became God's satifaction
For God raised Christ from the dead
Hallelujah for that transaction!

Praise God there's life in the blood
Through God our Lord's distribution
When He made man in His own image
He knew how to obtain restitution 
His sinless blood procured my pardon
I accepted faith savingly
For He was lifted up to lift me up
Hallelujah for Calvary!

Praise God for His Holy Word 
For it is my Pacifier
I've found a sure relief in Him
Who alone can lift man Higher
That He arose...historically recorded!
I've repented and trusted in Him
And according to the Word of God
Hallelujah I've been forgiven!!!

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
