He's The God Of Closeness

He's The God Of Closeness

He's the God of closeness
For closer can none other be
Then the very God of Abraham...Issac and Jacob
Now living inside of me
I know my Redeemer lives
For His Spirit bears Witness within
And convicts me the very moment
That I have contemplation of sin

O to be saved and to know it!
Garners a hallelujah and an amen
For most appreciative of all of God's children
Are those who are born again...
Who took the advice of the Saviour
Who said except you repent you shall die
And faith in Him will bring us through death's valley
Where we'll live in that sweet bye and bye

What a hope we have to rejoice in
At the beginning of every day
For we know the God of love and compassion
Who can offer forgiveness each day
He cleanseth me...He cleanseth me
His precious blood is my seal
For Calvary has set the stage for life...
The Resurrection proves it's real!!!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

HOPE in Christ is a very special word. It's what gives meaning to every day of this human life. YES! HE is far closer than any other can ever be. Praise the Lord !

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
