We Have Just Cause

We Have Just Cause

We have just cause for Hallelujah's 
For we know the risen One
Death no longer holds us captive
For we've believed on Christ the Son 
And as He's become our Resurrection
We too shall rise one glorious day
What hope for today and hope for tomorrow
For us there's a land that is fairer than day

I live in His strength for my weakness
In His wealth for my want
All of His richness is my treasure
Life no more is nonchalant 
What a Saviour who loves us dearly
Proved His worthiness by the Cross
Poured out His gifting through His blood on Calvary
His uttermost given at His uttermost cost

Bows this heart to thank this Saviour
Thank you Lord for saving me
Letting me know by your Spirit 
Praise God I'm set for eternity
Your indwelling...my Salvation
Hallelujah bless you Lord
All afforded to any sinner
Who repents and believes your Word!

Can you find a tidbit of praises
To offer back to God today
There must be something in your life
Where God has blessed you along life's way
Break out now with full blown praises
Bless you Lord...O bless you God
Although I never really thought about it before
Today it's most fully understood!

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
