Resting In God's Promises

Resting in God's promises
Secure in Jesus Christ
My armour is my faith in the Word
And in His finished Sacrifice
The Holy Spirit raised up Christ
And God had raised Him too
And as well Christ raised Himself
Our Triune God in view!

What a name is Jesus Christ 
Still the hope for every nation
The Author and Finisher of our faith
Who provides a so great Salvation
The only name that has such power
For it was divinely ordained
That whomsoever shall repent of their sin
Will be saved when they call on that name

Hallelujah that there still is life
Life in that Crucified One
Who offers forgiveness freely through grace
Praise God for the gift of His Son
Marred though He was more than any man
Exalted He reigns on High
Our Hallelujah has healing balm!
Sinner...come and draw nigh!

Our Hallelujah has healing balm!
Sinner...come and draw nigh!

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
