In Celebration Of My Salvation

In celebration of my Salvation
I give Thee praise O God
For Thou has led me by Your Spirit
To search Your blessed Word
And the treasure that I have found
More priceless than rubies or gold
The sweet deliverance from the power of sin
The half has never been told!

The cleansing felt on the inside
By Your forgiveness for sin
Definitely leaves a soul to embrace
The joy of really rejoicing 
Being born again by the Spirit of God
Through faith believing Your Word
Where grace upon grace abounds in love
Hallelujah for the Lord!

These once blinded eyes now can see
My feeble feet can run
Since I've heard of the blessings of the Lord
My faith's journey has just begun
And He Who holds the world in His hands
Hallelujah has a grip on me
I'm saved!...saved!...saved!...saved!
Hallelujah for Calvary!

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
