Thank You Lord For The Remembrances

Thank You Lord for the remembrances
Of the stirring of my heart
When Your Word really began it's work
To deliver me from the dark
I had never really known that sin
Had accompanied me from my birth
And that I needed to be born again...
The second...a Spiritual birth!

O the slayer that sin was
To blind me as it did
As Satan superintended the means
To turn me away from God
But Hallelujah for the Light of the world
My Saviour Jesus Christ
Who offered me an eternal hope 
In the giving of His life

Now I can arise with joy
For I'm living with a so great Salvation
For I've ve placed my faith in Jesus Christ
My Life and my Resurrection
No I'm not excited about death
But I know that when it comes
I have a Shepherd who will lead me safely
To my Heavenly home!

I'm reminded that I have a Redeemer
Who through the shedding of His own blood
Made us His  purchased and prized.. possession!
Hallelujah my Saviour and God!
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One
I cannot help but give to Him praise
Who undertook for sin on my behalf
To know love in the greatest of way!!!

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
