Fully, freely, finally, forever!
Is God's forgiveness grace
It comes to us as a gift of repentance
When we seek the Master's  face
To know Him and to be known of Him
A Spiritual connection Divine
Praise God for that so great Salvation
Now that I am His and He is mine

Who would think that God's own Word
Could reveal the heart's of all men
And prove beyond a shadow of doubt
Of our need to be born again
The taintedness of our sin nature
Because we are born of the flesh
The Holy Spirit brings personal conviction
Of our need to repent no less

Praise God that faith comes by hearing
And hearing by the Word of God
A whole new world can be opened unto you
If you would just trust in the Word of the Lord
Make today that deliberate choice
God.. be merciful unto me
Help me to call upon the name of Your Son
So that Your grace might dwell within me...

Lord I come just as I am
To receive Lord all of You
I trust in the power of Your shed blood
To cleanse me through and through
Knowing full well that death could not hold
Or keep You Lord in the grave
Praise God Lord You have power over death
And hallelujah Jesus Christ saves!!!

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
