Set Free

Set free set free indeed
Christ became my Rescue
When turbulence reigned within
And my life was all askew
He came and took sin's penalty
Took it for you and me
Nothing cheers the heart as such
For Christ has set me free!

Not a religion but a relationship
Formed with our very God
His presence with us everyday
So says the Word of the Lord
The Holy Spirit living within
Bearing witness now with me
When I repented of my sin
Praise God Christ set me free!

The shackles of sin have left some scars
I know from whence I came
But I am now no longer held fast
All praise be to Christ's name
The Resurrection Life is come
Once blind I now can see
And raised with Him my Living Head
Praise God I've been set free!

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
