Lord You Brought Me Through

Lord You Brought Me Through

Lord You brought me through
When I was out of sorts
So many times through Your power and love
You've been my sure Reward
Your grace has been my comfort
As I rest upon Your Word
You are my steadfast Hope and Helper
And for that I praise You Lord

For this I praise You Lord as well
In the offering of Your Son
Who took death's penalty for all of my sin
Then praise God...the Resurrection!
Now I have new life in Him
Who gave His life for me
And whenever I rehearse my faith
It triggers a wondrous memory

A wondrous memory comes forth
Of my repentance day
When the burdens and the weight of my sin
Were completely rolled away
Now on a solid Rock I stand
A sure foundation Sure!
For Christ still is my Hope and my strength 
Of this His Spirit has made me assure!

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
