May The Redemptive Power

May the redemptive power of the Cross
Lord be evident in my life
May my witness be a testimony 
As a result of a crucified life
Not my will but thine be done
May my heart be obedient to Thee
As a generous offering for the so great Salvation 
That You provided at Calvary

Arrest my soul if it seeks to stray
And wander off afar
But keep me Lord close to Thy breast
And find true fellowship there
I don't want to grieve the Holy Spirit
For I know that He lives in me
But use me as a vessel cleansed
So that You might receive the glory

Let us be the lights to this whole world
For great darkness is at hand
Hallelujah You are our constant hope
And on your Word praise God we stand
Irresistibly compelling is our witness
There are lost souls to be saved
Our identification with the crucified Christ
Who rose up from the grave!

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
