What A Marvellous Work

What a marvellous work of the Spirit of God
To bring a lost soul to Christ
To make a heart once bent on sin
To realize our Lord's sacrifice
And bring the truth to the light it is
And the proof of our condemnation
And then to offer up a blessed hope
In the wonder of a so great Salvation

The Spirit appointed by our God
To be searching every day
Ever alertful to those hearts
Who've decided to change their ways
Then to bring the means whereby
To facilitate with saving grace
Every sinner who truly repents
And who seeks the Master's face

Then the consummation of our faith
Affirmed by peace and joy
The genuine forgiveness for our sin
A life with God to enjoy
A transformation in our soul
Darkness has turned into light
And the abiding presence of the Spirit of God
We know that all is right!

O blessed Spirit I give you thanks
For your part in my Salvation
The role you played in leading me to
The realization of my condemnation
And then taking the Word of God
And making it all so plain
So that I could repent and believe
And know the joy of being "born again"!

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
