God Of Love And God Of Compassion

God of love and God of compassion
You are Lord of all
Not willing that any should perish
But that on Thee all may call
The truth revealed in Jesus Christ
The Word becoming flesh
You loved your world with such a love
You gave of your Son to bless

He the Gift that keeps on giving
His Spirit brings to light
Every soul that seeks the Saviour
Is rescued from his darkest night
When sin is repented with a broken heart
How precious in God's sight
To the glory of God our praises
We rejoice in His delight

Be ye reconciled to God
Make haste to find His Way
There is Salvation in none other
He's the same as yesterday
Today, and forever,
We find true hope in Him
What a Saviour... Hallelujah
O praise His precious name!

God of love and God of compassion
We thank You for your grace
Who gives each sinner opportunity
To seek Thy blessed face
And know the love of God in Christ
That's found in Him alone
That has power to deliver us from sin
And present us faultless before Thy Throne

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
