There's no joy like the joy of the Lord
From hearts that have been forgiven 
That know the love of the Father within
And have experienced a taste of Heaven
What lightness now there is in a soul
Freed from the burdens of sin
Enjoying lifting up praises to God
Knowing the mercy received from Him!

Now the meditation of my heart
Is fixed on Christ alone
What great love that He has for sinners
To turn their lives around
And we can be His helpers
To spread around that word of love
Give us strength O Lord today
And a passion for you God

Amen for the joy of the Lord
There's revival in my soul
Awakened again to the wonderment
How the hurting can be whole
To know God as my Father
Through believing on Jesus His Son
Hallelujah for such saving faith!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!...amen!!!

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
