God Is His Own Authority

God is His own authority
Besides Him is none other
Everything that you see and don't see
He's made it all my brother
And in His longsuffering love 
His love for you and for me
He's made a channel through the which to bless us
Thank God for Calvary

The greatest battle that was ever fought
Was fought there for our sin
Jesus bore our wrath for it
Such was the great love of Him
When the Devil thought that he had Him
He was in for a big surprise
For  Christ was three days only in that Tomb
And the angels watched Him arise....

And hallelujah's are still resounding
For a risen Saviour have we
Bought and paid for...signed...sealed and delivered
Forgiveness now flowing free!
What a Salvation in Jesus Christ
No wonder that it's called so great
I would encourage you friend to seek your Maker
Seek Him before its to late!

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
