Praise God For His Abiding Grace

Praise God for His abiding grace
That keeps me day by day
I'm forever uplifted by the fact
That Christ is my constant Stay
O I have learned to praise Him
And I thank Him everyday
For I know where all my blessing come from
God sends them all my way

I will never leave nor forsake you
Says the Man of His Word
Not one promise has He ever reneged on
His absolute truth is assured
He's guranteed my Salvation
My redemption through His blood
His Resurrection assured me Heaven
Because I trusted the Lord

Saved by grace through faith
Upon repentance of my sin
I became a born again believer 
Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!
Everyday upon my arising
I say my prayers to Him
And set my day in grace's hands
Trusting completely in Him

Grace is my constant companion
And I know from whence I came
I have no desire to return to sinning
Since Jesus my Friend became
I love the Lord who ransomed me
At the hightest cost of good
Not of any works that He did
But by the shedding of His precious blood!

May grace arrive at your doorstep
As a messenger sent from God
And bring you to the realization of
The blessed promises in God's Word
There's a loving heavenly Father
Looking for prodigal son's 
Have you checked the spiritual temperature of your heart?
Maybe you're such a one!!!

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
