I've Never Felt So Alive

I've Never Felt So Alive

I've never felt so alive
As when I found life in Jesus Christ
It was like I was taken to the laundromat 
And cleansed inside and outside
Such a feeling of relief
The guilt of my sins were gone
My burdens were lifted at Calvary
And hallelujah's began their song...

Was all I could think of now
The Holy Spirit sealed my decision
Praise God!...delivered from Hell!
What a wonderful relationship
Had now my God and I
A recipient of Eternal Life
And as well of grace's supply!

That blessed hope gave me assurance 
When I trusted in God's Word
And magnified the work of Christ
Praise God I finally heard
There is life!...praise God there's life...
When you trust in the Crucified One
You'll never feel more alive than when
You repent and believe on the Son...

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

Yes! I took that step, by faith, when I was eleven years old. It seemed that, for me, everything changed. He still saves, keeps and satisfies!

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
