No Him...No Hymn

If you do not know the Lord my friend
Then you have no song to sing
For the soul can never experience true rejoicing 
Until it has been forgiven for sin
Sin a commodity at our own peril
It will bring us to our death
But praise God for our Resurrected Saviour
Who's rising again gives eternal breath

Praise God for the old rugged Cross
Its memory is indelibly etched
On the heart of this saved sinner
Who received Heaven from arms outstretched 
Where love poured out from Calvary
Is freely flowing still
From the Man of sorrows acquainted with grief
Who loveth us.. loveth us still!

Now I can sing because I am saved
I know I have been redeemed
Upon the day of my repentance
Christ put a new song within me
Now that I know Him!..O Hallelujah!
All praises be unto that Lamb
Because I really know Him...really know Him!
His hymns are my favourites!.. Amen!!!

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
