Praise Must Be Expressed In Song

Praise Must Be Expressed In Song
Praise must be expressed in song
And burst forth from a heart
That has been redeemed and forgiven from sin
My God how great Thou art
For there's not another glory
Like the glory of the Cross
The Light of the world suffering there
To preserve us from sin's highest cost

O how His blood is precious
The Rock of Ages cleft for me
Who saved me from the wrath of God
When He took sins full penalty
What love has done this for me
When I was so undeserving 
No wonder now that I can praise Him
And all of my life I'll serve Him

Amen...yes people need the Lord
Who can fill an empty heart
And give it cause to give Him praises
Hallelujah how great Thou art
Whenever I survey the wondrous Cross
And I think of His destruction
Then praise God again my praises start
For Christ is my Resurrection!

I give no provision to my flesh
To cause it to go astray
For how could I ever be... so unthankful
To whom showed me the Light of day
Now on a note...a higher note
My heart desires to sing
For in Christ I have such a wonderful Saviour
And hallelujah...He's my everything!!!

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
