We Are Wired To Worship

We are wired to worship 
an extravagant God
Who blesses us abundantly
For every good and perfect gift comes down from our heavenly Father
The Creator of eternity
And the greatest gift that He's ever given
Was found in the person of His Son
Hallelujah for that wonderful Saviour
And hallelujah for His so great Salvation

For in God's great love towards us
He beckons us first with His love
Then seeks to woe us with His goodness 
As a jesture to our repentance mood
But so often as per usual
We miss this early attention
Then our God in mercy and in wondrous grace 
Puts into operation His divine intervention

And how many times...we'll know someday
The protective hand of His providence
And all the things that have marked our paths
We'll see that they were not by chance
But all along in a wonderful way
We became introduced to the Word
And praise God that began a journey of faith
That gradually lead us to know the Lord

Talk about extravagance!
I have hallelujah's that I cannot contain
For they burst forth from this heart in immediate thankfulness
Whenever  they mention Christ's name...
And the God of my Salvation...hallelujah!
Holy...Holy...Holy...Holy is He
For He's the God of utmost extravagance 
For He saved a lost sinner like me!!!

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
