Salvation...What A Gift

Salvation...What A Gift!

Salvation ...what a gift!
That God has bestowed un to men
To offer up such an amazing grace
To us who are drenched in sin
Forgiveness as His offering
Freely given at the Cross
All of our sin erased in a second
When faith is truly engrossed...

Salvation...what a gift!
Absoluely astounding!
When we employ the method to find it
Our rejoicing becomes abounding
Praises as a part and parcel
Of our daily routine
And praying now as never before
Because of the Light we've seen

Salvation...what a gift!
Heaven's finest to our rescue
Sin's Conqueror in the flesh
To give us life anew
Holy Spirit...thank You
By drawing me through the Word
T'was the gladest day ever in my life
Praise God that His Word I heard!

Salvation...what a gift!
It's yours here to unwrap
Get into the Word and read your Bible
It's just as plain as that!
God will surely touch base with You
After all you are the cause of His mission
Godly repentance always gains a reward
It's Salvation as your admission!!!

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
