Praise God for Charles Spurgeon

Who blesses us still today

Whose heart was overflowing with

The love of Salvation's Day

A tender hearted youngster

That the Spirit led to hear

Simple preaching from God's Word

To the which he did adhere

And where that Spirit led him

To the heart of London town

To shepherd thousands of people

His name became renowned

He put the blood of Jesus

At the forefront of his text

Then went on to preach Him

Christ crucified no less

The people thronged about Him

A hunger for God's Word

Was instilled in hearts of people

Which before they never heard

He lifted up Lord Jesus

Caused human eyes to see

Jesus Christ was sufficient

For the ails of humanity

His heart was heavy laden

For the souls of kindred men

He poured out his life in service

To show them born again

That being born again

Was ofsuchnecessity

Except a man be born again

Helives a Christless eternity

That message never changes

It still remains the same

Except a man repents of sin

He has eternal shame

But praise God, the Master

Offers full pardon to all

Come to Christ, by way of the cross
Heed ye the Saviour's call

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
