Thank You Lord For The So Great Salvation

Thank you Lord for the so great Salvation
That You have given unto me
The gift of God...eternal life
The breath of Eternity!
To be filled with Your Holy Spirit
Heaven come down to earth
Indwelling me upon my repentance
Hallelujah for my new birth!

A new creation now am I
Saved and a son of God
Fitted now for my Heavenly home
When I'm raptured up above
Clothed in God's righteousness
My gift when I believed
Hallelujah saved by grace through faith
His mercy I received!

So here I am to praise Him
That One who died for me
In spite of the bondage to sin I was in
His forgiveness set me free!
Praise God to be in His will
Enjoying walking in the Light
Keeping my eyes focused on Lord Jesus
My Salvation and my Life!

Where He leads me I must follow
For He knows the paths I take
And He prepares me for every trial
He maketh no mistake
O I'm so thankful I've come to know Him
The One who died for me
And I've learned to really...really trust Him
And trust Him praise God completely!

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
