The Certainty Of Salvation

The certainty of Salvation
Is like a breath of fresh air
Your life that once was dampened by sin
Receives eternal life here!
And faith in believing the Word of God
And trusting in His own dear Son
The Holy Spirit brings it on home
Faith's victory has just begun

That the way of the Cross leads Home
The Lord Jesus Christ now as our constant Shepherd
And He's promised to never leave us alone
God gave us the Book of Life manual
And Immanuel is that name
That if someone praise God will call upon it
They will never be the same again

The certainty of Salvation
I know that I know that I know
Once I was lost in the darkness of sin
But Lord Jesus has now made me whole
He took all the sin charges against me
And nailed them to an old rugged Cross
Now I'm living in the light of the Tomb
That His Resurrection has gained for us!!!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!
Who took on my guilt for me
And bore the shame and shed His own blood
That day there at Calvary
Now I can live rejoicingly
And rejoicingly live I do
For His wonderful grace of forgiveness
Has brought this sinner on through...

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

Nothing can be compared to the day a person puts his/her trust in Christ Jesus and is saved for eternity! Your first verse says it all!

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
