I Joy In The Power

I joy in the power of Jesus Resurrection
Praise God He arose for me
He took death to the mat for sins insurrection
Hallelujah for Calvary
Now we can boast in the hope for all ages
Praise God...the anchor for our soul
Who can take any sinner and through the power of the blood
Cleanse Him and make him whole!

Fresh is the fragrance...of sins forgiveness
The weight of it lifted from me
Now planted firmly in God's Word 
With the Holy Spirit living in me
Steadfast...unmoveable...I'm standing on that Rock
On that Rock of Ages cleft for me
Rejoicing in my spirit for this so great Salvation
Praising God that Christ died for me

The joy of the Lord is my strength
I've a song of a soul set free
Singing now in praise of that One who satisfies
Who alone can set sins captives free
Faith in His name secured my Salvation
I believed and now I am saved
And when death comes to visit and to take me away
Hallelujah Christ has conquered the grave!!!

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
