I Thank You Heavenly Father

I thank you heavenly Father for the Lord Jesus Christ
The lover.. .the Lover of my soul
Who magnified Your righteousness by the way He lived His life
Who can calm the fiercest storms within
Even while the sea billows roll

There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus
Who can lift your spirits High
And can give you Hallelujah's daily
Until you're in the sweet bye and bye
Who can put Heaven in your heart on earth
Just by trusting in the Son
Praise God His grace was sufficient for me
And is to each believing one!

His Word still gives a living Hope
For it shall never pass away
For by it the world came into being
And by His Word it shall remain!
He became the Word in flesh... hallelujah!
The virgin born Jesus Christ
O how I thank you Heavenly Father that...
He "paid in full!!!" sins ransom price!

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
