I Am Satisfied

I am Satisfied

I am satisfied with the mercy of God
So glad He rescued me
From the sins that held me captive
Praise God for Calvary
I never knew how dark the night
That was engulfing me
Nor how strong the tentacles of sin
Would keep me from being free

But then I heard the story of Jesus
How that He died for me
And of the grave where they laid Him
This was all new to me
Then I saw my sin clearly
Even though through weeping eyes
How could I refuse such wonderful love
Surely it would be my demise

Then emptiness became my fulfillment
The tomb had no body to bare
When they went looking for Jesus
Praise God... He wasn't there!
The Lord had become Resurrection
For up from the grave He arose
Openly declaring to his disciples
I have defeated all foes

O yes satisfied am I
That God came looking for me
And set His affection upon my soul
Extending to it His mercy
And dealt with my sin upon the cross
By placing there His own dear Son
Grace still available and mercy abundant
Come and believe on this One!

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
