We Were Built To Worship

We were built to worship
And to praise the living God
Steadfast in our devotion
To the One who is the Word
Who holds this world together
As He spoke it into being
All power and authority He is
Hallelujah for that King

Who came to earth in splendor
In the person of the Son
Virgin born Deliverer 
In the town of Bethlehem 
From a manger's lowly place
To be lifted up on High
To draw all men unto Himself
For for our sins He died!

Love come down in humaness 
He knew the heart's of men
Praise God Christ is our freedom Fighter
To deliver from Satan's domain
No works of ours could pay the debt
Of our sins accumulation 
Hallelujah for the blood of Christ
That wrought our so great Salvation!

Yes we were built to worship
To give praises to that One
Who took our place at Calvary
For the mess that sin had done
And now a cloak of God's righteousness
Can be our covering for sure
For when we repent of sin in our lives
That's when the Lord draws near!

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
