Gracious  God


Gracious God, Heavenly Father;
All we are and have is Thine!
You have given us salvation,
Saved us for the end of time!

Eternal glory, Man of Sorrows;
Took our place on Calvary!
Paid the sin debt God demanded,
Bled and let the captives free!

Faith has found us in the wanting;
Increase our faith Lord in this land!
Give us souls for our labours,
Strike the chords, Hallelujah’s band!

All creation groaneth, travaileth;
Waiting for Thy coming Son!
May all people in the nation,
Trust in Jesus Christ - God's Son!

Jesus Christ is Lord of Glory
God the Father's only Son
Praise you Lord, Salvation's story
Is the grand Redemption song!

Come again, oh precious Jesus;
We are waiting patiently!
May we preach your precious Word ,
Help to set some captive free!

Pour out blessings on your people;
May our prayers be in your will!
Precious Saviour, hear our pleading,
May we hear your, "Peace be still"!

Sing O glory, Hallelujah!
Christ arose and reigns on high!
Satan knows he is defeated;
But still wants all men to die!

God shall break those bands asunder;
He who conquered sin shall reign!
Holy Spirit send revival,
May all men be born again!

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
