Not Willing That Any Should Perish

Not Willing That Any Should Perish 

Not willing that any should perish 
God gave of His only Son
For the distribution of grace
That this world would be dependant upon
For sin had run a tragic course
And men had lost their way
But God in His great mercy and love
Brought a hallelujah Hope that day!

Are we who know the Lord
Comforted by the love of God
Because we believed His Word
And took it at faith value
Which is most pleasing to God
Now standing in His righteousness 
Where once condemned we stood!

Hallelujah what a Saviour
Is my heart's echoing!
For my Lord's so great Salvation
Has given me cause to sing..
For there's no freedom like forgiveness
From the penalty and guilt of sin
That takes place at Calvary
When you ask Lord Jesus in...

Your heart has room for companionship
With a love that shall never end
Call upon the Lord today
And come and know a forever Friend!
Have a relationship with Jesus Christ
For there's no religion  that can take His place
For the One who went to Calvary's Cross for you
Can save you today by His grace!

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
