Praise God For The Gift Of Love

Praise God for the gift of love
The Father's heart on display
Who sent His only begotten Son
To Calvary one day
To take the penalty for our sin
And put on display full grace
And giving pardon to repentant heart's 
Who seek the Master's face

His love encompasses all mankind
It touches every realm
For wherever man finds himself
God's love is at the helm
God commands His love towards us
To seek and to save the lost
And the absolute benefit of God's love
Is found on an old rugged Cross

Where blood was found as evidence
Of an innocence not worthy of death
As the Lord Jesus uttered forgiving words
As part of His dying breath
One thief on the cross paid full attention
And his heart was rescued by truth
For He recognized the Lord for who He truly was
He believed!!!...and how about you???

The Resurrection proves God’s love
He was satisfied with Christ's Sacrifice
In that He raised Him from the dead
Hallelujah Christ paid sins price!
Whenever now when I see a heart
It reminds me of God's love
For...for the provision of my sin
He sent His Son from above!!!

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
