Grace Came

Grace came in full disclosure
In the person of God's Son
With forgiveness as a blessed offering
Hallelujah to repentant one's 
None so vile that cannot be changed
Though sin's depravity knows no end
Why even the very chiefest of sinner's 
Praise God they can be...born again!

God's Word praise God...O hallelujah 
Owns the portal to our soul
Brings conviction to each wanderer
Who truly desires to be made whole
The Holy Spirit takes the truth
And bends our heart's to realize
There is a loving Heavenly Father
Who sent His Son to earth to die

Holiness in human fashion
God's own Son as Sacrifice
To not one sin was He beholden
The virgin born Lord Jesus Christ
He precious blood...life giving fountain
It still has power to cleanse from sin
Let every heart that longs for Heaven
Find that cleansing power in Him

The grave hallelujah it could not hold Him
Yet for our own sin the Saviour died
God raised His own Son as proof of pardon
That in Christ's offering He was satisfied
Still power in that name above all others
Through which is granted...eternal life
While saving faith is on the table
Come now and believe...on Jesus Christ!!!

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
