The Peace That Comes Down From Heav

The Peace That Comes Down From Heaven

The peace that comes down from Heaven
Can dwell in your heart today
You can know the full measure of forgiveness 
When you trust in the Life...the Truth and the Way
All of God's arsenal of love
Has been placed upon a Cross
And nailed fast for our sin...
Such a love that He had for us!

What a Salvation in that Saviour
Who alone can give such wonderful peace
Like a rushing fountain of blessing
His precious blood has guaranteed!
Come all ye who are labored and heavy ladened
Come casting all of your cares upon Him
For He who has warred by the love of a Father
Has true peace that you can know within!

Come today and know that Saviour
Who showed His power by calming a sea
And Who has set His affection upon you
To offer the peace of Calvary
Not as the world giveth is Christ's peace
For His authority knows no bounds
For His Word that gave utterence to earth's existence
Praise God that peace...can still be found...!

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
