Lord You Are All Powerful

LORD YOU ARE ALL POWERFUL



 



Lord You are all powerful,



Almighty God areYou



You generate the energy



To see the believer through



By Your Holy Spirit



Indwelling us down here



We’ve no cause for worry



Nor any cause for fear



 



You have triumpthed mightily



Over sin, death, and hell.



All the ransomed hosts now sing



With our soul tis  well



Though satan seeks to devour us



In our walk each day



We can have the Victory



For Lord, You are our Stay



 



For greater is He that’s within us



Than he that is in the world



With our shield of faith



Deflecting darts that are hurled



We have a conflict daily



Yet You have said “Stand fast”



The trials you are experiencing



These too shall pass



 



With no hope the people perish



But Lord our hope’s in Thee



Creator and Redeemer



The Lamb of Calvary



Now we’re really living



For up from the grave You arose



Righteousness exalts that nation



Whom our God doth know



 



With steps of faith we plod on



Here am I, use me



Make my heart a burden place



For lost souls such as we



Give out the bread my brother



Pass out the water too



Give that Bread of Life to others



That they may drink Anew

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
