Lord I Wish That I Could Explain Grace

Lord I wish that I could explain grace
For what it really is
That men would find that the goodness of God
Is the drawing card of repentance
What a sad and sorrowful day
If they fail to acknowledge this
And when the pleasures of the world
Are exposed as to the dung that it was!

The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes
The pride of life revealed
The lovers of this world exposed
And their eternal fate is sealed!
But You still offer grace in exchange
For heart's that are willing to live
And full forgiveness covered with mercy
Is the offering that You give!

Hallelujah for a repentance
That is still available to men
Why take a chance on tomorrow friend
When today is still at hand!
If there's anyone you want to make happy
Then make that One... your God!
For He is grace Personified!
And you can find Him in the Word!!!

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
