My Discovery

My discovery of a Saviour
Who has shed His precious blood
Has been the utmost blessing to me
Since the day that I understood
God's Word made it so simplistically plain
That even a child could understand
That saving faith in Jesus Christ
Can assure us of Gloryland...

For Heaven came down in humanness
And expressed Himself in love
Freely giving forgiveness grace
And cleansing by His blood
His Word as our sure Marker
For It's presence is forever
The Holy Spirit as the Seal of our heart's 
That we truly know the Saviour...

My discovery is my treasure
For Christ has made me whole
For once when I was bound by sin
He wrought Salvation in my soul
His Resurrection power still proves
That men shall live again
And to every repentant heart that believes
That discovery shall never end!!!

I'm not looking for a sign
But listening for a sound
For when I hear the trump of God
Hallelujah I'll be Glorybound
Then to live with Him... who died for me
Who came to conquer sin
And who proved that death was but only a shadow
To those who have trusted in Him!

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
