Heaven Awaits

Heaven awaits the formulation of
A repentant lost sinner's prayer
Where Angel's stand in attendance too
The change that's taking place there
And the Holy Spirit's on full alert
To bring the wanderer home
Where faith's applied through the Wotd of God
Finding Christ as its Cornerstone

Now the atmosphere of heaven itself
Finds rejoicing in that matter
As a lost soul repents and believes
Securing life for in the hereafter
And faith takes hold in glorious fashion
To save a wretch like me Salvation approved by God Himself
Through His Spirit bearing witness in me

Now my heart generated with praise
Sings the song of a soul set free
In highest regard for the blood of the Lamb
Shed for me there at Calvary
Though my sins were red as crimson
To cover the stench of my sin
Lord Jesus's precious... life saving blood
Has brought me full... cleansing within

Hallelujah I still raise my Hallelujah's
As an expression of the joy that I felt
I cannot keep it in silence anymore
That story just has to be telt
Now... I'm still here in good standing ...standing!
As a result of someone's answer to prayer
Who knows if I'll ever find out this side of Heaven
But praise God I'll definitely  find out over there!

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
