From Grace To Grace 

From grace to grace 
There's nothing like it
a relationship with God
Whose name alone is Wonderful 
The written and living Word
Who gives His Spirit to indwell
The heart's of repentant one's 
Who cleansed now by His precious blood
Love to magnify the Son...

The glorification of that name
Upon its rich discovering
Who gives forgiveness by His grace
When He exposes sins uncoverings 
And all of the darkness by which we were clothed
It had to flee away
When it was exposed to God's righteousness 
When we saw the light of day

Praise God from grace to grace 
My Redeemer leadeth me
And holds me by His mighty power
Praise God for Calvary 
To bad the world can't see inside
With an x-ray of my heart
And see the design of a forgiven soul
How God has done His part

We stand upon a solid Rock 
Praise God for faith's Foundation 
The Author and both Finisher of such 
And the God of all Creation 
Who when He speaks the earth shall tremble
Which He created by His Word
And by the same He holds it fast 
Praise God of this I'm assured!

A blessed hope that shall never diminish
For it fadeth not away
For the Holy Spirit that dwells within
Has sealed it for always
Mine to know...yours to discover 
May my life be used to embrace
The blessed knowledge of the love of God
Who leads me from grace to grace!

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
