Exceeding Great

Exceeding Great

Exceeding great and precious promises
Have we who know the Lord
Now partakers of a divine nature
Our inheritance upon trusting God's Word 
Always keeping in remembrance
The stories of the past
Being established in the present truth
Remaining in the faith steadfast

We have an everlasting kingdom
Of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Diligent in making our calling and election sure
For He became sins ransom price
When we put off this old tabernacle
And we're clothed with a body glorified
Praise God for this sure word of prophecy
That made the day star in our hearts arise

Exceeding great and precious promises 
Recorded for our reflection
Holy men of God spoke as they were moved
The Holy Ghost assuring their perfection
And standing on those promises of God
With a hope that shall not fade away
Hallelujah for my Resurrection and Life!
Praise be to my God I say!

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
