There's A Bonding

There's A Bonding 

There's a bonding like none other 
When you know that you know your God 
The Holy Spirit as our personal Indweller
As the promise laid out in God's Word
Repent and believe and its settled!
The Cross as our refuge place
Jesus Christ died for all of my sin
And extended to me love and great grace

I know that I know that I know
I have faith in a triune God
The Father..the Son...and the Holy Spirit
Have blessed me through reading the Word
With prayer as a constant companion.
And praise following along now as well
I'm fortified in their companionship 
And with my soul I know all is well

There are moments when God really reaches me
He has such pure healing balm
Not tainted with any worldliness
But with blood from the Saviour's palms
What a death that Lord Jesus died for me
To give me a life that I could now live
A new heart purposed in living for God
Loving and willing to forgive

When you touched down on planet earth
Little did we then but know
How much of a blessing You were wanting to give
To those who would seek you so
Praise God for the Lord Jesus Christ
Who can wash us as white as snow
Just ask me how I know my friend
For I know that I know that I know!

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
