Raise Your Voices in Praise
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Raise your voice in praise
And let the whole world know
There is a God in Heaven above
Who loves the sinner so
So much that He sent His Son
To take the sinner's place
Upon a cross at Calvary
He died for the human race

So willingly He gave
Himself to His Father's will
Became obedient unto death
And loves the sinner still
Now at God's right hand
Where He ever interceeds
All glory, honor, and praise
Providing grace we need

What sonship,joint heirs with Christ
Quickened and led by His Spirit
His Word what precious alloy
He who hath ears let him hear it
There you will find truest treasure
Jesus our so great Salvation
Faith built upon the apostles and prophets
Jesus Christ Himself our foundation

What surer standing could be
We stand fast in Him
Who rose again from the dead
Great Victor over sin
Now within us dwells
The very God of Heaven
Who gives His Spirit as Surety
That we shall live again

Rejoice, I say rejoice
Praise Him brother praise
Let your light so shine amongst men
They'll know that Jesus saves
Overflows that heart
With love and adoration
That's tasted and seen the Lord is Good
What a wonderful Salvation

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
