He Knows Our Name

He knows our name and He knows our frame
He knows how weak we are
Yet He offers Himself as our strength
Who knows the name of every star
To have Him as our own possesion
My God how great Thou art
Who stoopeth down with lovingkindness 
To mend each broken heart...

Praise God He's still on a mission
With plenteous grace to bestow
On every repentant heart there's provision
Jesus loves me this I know
Sin can now... no longer slay me
For it thinks it has power in death
But Hallelujah..praise God for the Lord Jesus Christ
The Giver of eternal breath!

Now I'm living my life afresh
With a hope that fadeth not away
For I've found a so great  Salvation in Christ
Who has turned my night into day
His Holy Spirit took up residence
On the very moment that I believed
The gift of God is eternal life
To every soul who has received! 

So what's keeping you back from deciding
Will I or will I not?
Make your decision for Christ today
Enjoy the mercy that Christ has bought
For through His blood shedding Sacrifice
There on the Cross of Calvary

Through it all still shines the Light of the world
May it shine today in your heart for thee!!!

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
