There's A Magnetism

There's A Magnetism 

There's a magnetism in the Saviour
That draws us close to God
That leads us in a way of life
That seeks another's good
That puts a passion in our heart's 
To tell them the old, old story
Not just for the good of ourselves
But that God may get all the glory

We are drawn to God each day
Upon our awakening moment
We know from  whence our breath comes from
For from the Lord it is sent
Every moment of every hour
His grace is flowing through us
The joy of being forgiven for sin
Breeds thankfulness unto us

There's power in His precious blood
The Lamb still has His offering
To rid us from the power of sin
And heal our inner suffering
O the love that Jesus gives
To help us serve Him daily
To seek a soul that needs the Lord
Who then by the truth can be set free

O Hallelujah Christ  has come
O come let us adore Him
And bow our heart's to worship Him
Who alone can save us from sin
Now instrumental in my life
His Spirit's inner Presence
Drawing me to magnify
The glory of His essence

Christ in me my hope of glory
Faith's transaction is done!
I saw myself as a poor lost sinner
But gained the riches of God's Son
What a way to end a living
For when I'll be called home
It will be my presence with my Saviour
There at the Father's throne!

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
