In Adoration

In adoration of my Salvation
I give Thee praise O God
For poured out love from Calvary
Where for sin condemned I stood
And making the way of Salvation plain
That if I acknowledge unto You my sin
And turn in repentance from them Lord
That then I could be born again

Praise God Your Spirit quickened me
And I awoke to my despair
I saw the helplessness of my situation
And how sin had brought me here
Then the glory of the Cross
The all sufficiency of Your grace
I felt the burden of the weight of sin
And I sought the Master's face

No meeting place more greater than
When the soul has found it's Maker
And Heaven takes up habitation
By the grace of the world's Creator
And that love poured out at Calvary
Flows through a sinner's veins
The Spirit proving His presence there
We are never the same again!

My faith has found its Hallelujah
And it's anchored in the Son
Secure it stands as the Lord Himself
For He is the faith saving One
Continual joy and rejoicing now
For up from the grave He arose
He's defeated our chiefest foe!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
