Praise God for Our Pastor

PRAISE GOD FOR OUR PASTOR

 

Praise God I had a pastor
He loved to preach and sing
His burden for the souls of men
Top priority in everything

 

Witness to a faithful man
Called of God I know
Humble in those everyday tasks
That preachers are called unto

 

But until I came to the Lord
I did not know how deep
Was the love of God in him
For all the worlds lost sheep

 

When we sang he sometimes wept
T’was unashamedly
As he wiped away those tearful eyes
Through mine I could hardly see

 

Touched by the Spirit, worship came
To visit us that day
God had pressed out the winepress of praise
And His Glory came our way.

 

O Hallelujah sing it,
With tears of joy mingled in
Praise God for so great Salvation
Jesus Christ has died for our sins

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
