O How He Loves

O How He Loves

Hallelujah what a Saviour
That Christ came to earth to die
To experience death for everyman
Then return to Heaven on High
He took our place at Calvary
So that we might be free
And gave old sin the shake of its life
And procured our sure relief 

I praise God automatically
My praise is always in gear
For I'm set for the defense of the gospel
His Word gives victory's assured
What a Resurrected Saviour
Alive as all get out
And those of us who trust Him daily
Can't but help to shout

Just a sinner saved by grace
But O what a grace it was
Imagine the very God of Heaven
To own our worthy cause
Praise God my praises shall never cease
For His Spirit lives within
Hallelujah what a Saviour
Who can forgive a heart of sin

Amen its an inside happening
To the very heart of the matter
For the sin that has a hold on you
Christ can make it shatter
He can break those shackles
That have held you fast for years
Put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ 
And enjoy the rest of your years!

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
