What Grace
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


What grace that love of God
That shines on sinful man
Gives him opportunity
To repent and be born again
The Light of the world Lord Jesus
Who willingly went to the cross
Still offers Himself as the Saviour
For all who are weary and lost

What grace that love of God
Who stooped to sinful man
Humbled Himself to become human
Although He was the I Am
Who made us flesh from simple dust
And gave us the earth as home
Still is seeking sinful man
And to call the wayward home

What grace that love of God
What indebtedness I owe
Who took my sin and wrought deliverance
For this old weary soul
To taste the joy of forgiveness
My sin with all it's past
Was dealt a blow at Calvary
Given a life that will ever last

What grace that love of God
That keeps me by His Spirit
That gives me joy in living
O brother sister hear it
Don't refuse such wondrous grace
That's given from above
Nowhere in this whole wide world
Will you find such grace and love

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
