Come Along and Sing with Me


The Spirit stirs within my soul
When hymns of old, over me roll
I hear those strains of chorus's sure
That made me respond to preaching and prayer

When I was quickened and came to the Lord
A remembrance of - a time adored
It stayed within me all these years
And brings me still to comforting tears

I can't hold back my love for Him
Who has delivered from death and sin
But gladly embrace that glorious cross
Where Christ has suffered for the lost

Sing my soul! Sing it again!
Of Jesus, my Lord, the sinners' Friend!
Hallelujahs fill my soul
Praise to that Lord who has made me whole.

Look my brother! Look and live!
To Him who has so much to give
Take that gift of salvation, Free!
Then come and sing along with me.

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
