So Deserving Of Praise

So deserving of praise
Is my bleesed Lord
Who took the full onslaught of our sin
That we could ill afford
And every burden that we have
Praise God He can overcome
Who gently leads His children along
Until they reach their treasured Home

Mine to know in all His fullness
Hallelujah for that Lamb
Who gave Himself as a Sacrificial offering
Praise God for the Great I Am!
In full display at Calvary
Stretched out on an old rugged Cross
His precious blood was shed for me
His grace how wonderful and marvelous 

Drank I from that fountain of blessing
And praise God He has filled my cup
Now my blessings are overflowing
Since that day that I first supped
What a feasting to partake of
Come taste and see
the Lord is good
Who delighteth above all things
To change our heart's to servanthood!

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
