He Giveth Us Stories to Tell

HE GIVETH US STORIES TO TELL

O what great wonders
Our God's Hand hath wrought
He giveth us stories to tell
More than we ever could 
Think or have thought
He giveth us stories to tell.

CHORUS

He giveth us stories to tell
He giveth us stories to tell
O what great wonders our God's Hand hath wrought
He giveth us stories to tell

What joy to the world
That our Saviour has come
He giveth us stories to tell
Faith in the Lord
Who's the Crucified One
He giveth us stories to tell

All praise to my Maker
Who giveth me grace
He giveth us stories to tell
There's none other Savior
Who taketh His place
He giveth us stories to tell

My soul takes delight
In the blessings of God
He giveth us stories to tell
Even while under
His chastening rod
He giveth us stories to tell

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
