I Am Still

I am Still
 
Thank You Lord that I am still
And know that Thou art God
God my Saviour Jesus Christ
Who in my place has stood
 
And all my sins yes everyone
On Him alone were laid
Nailed to the rugged cross
Then borne unto the grave
 
But a surprise was in store
For that old serpent sure
For Jesus was to rise again
And win the victory there
 
What victory was won that day
What words " He has arisen! "
Now I'm still and know my God
Who is my "Resurrection"
 
And in my heart yes in my heart
I know that wondrous feeling
That Lord Jesus lives within
It sets my soul a reeling
 
Peace be still and know Thy God
Give thy soul sweet rest
For sin has no dominion there
Who know His Righteousness
 
Saved souls sing with gratitude
Thank You Lord for this
 I am still and know my God
Who wants His world to bless
 
Bless You Lord O bless You Lord
Who saves the sin sick soul
O be still know this God
Who makes the wounded whole
 
The stillness of this quietness
His Presence there with me
Resurrects the reassurance
I'm free I'm really free! 
 
I've lost my worldly appetite
For what of earth compares
To my precious time with God
Of the which it's unaware
 
 
Be ye still and know Thy God
Know His blessed Son
Know to have thy sins forgiven
Each and everyone
 
In your thoughtful meditation
Think of Calvary's hill
Then with wondrous jubilation
"Peace my soul be still. '

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
