A Childlike Faith

A CHILDLIKE FAITH
 
Give me a childlike faith Lord
Childlike to believe
Accepting without hesitation
What I will receive
 
When I ask You to save me
Salvation is so near
Inviting You into my heart Lord
You're immediately there
 
Trusting in Your promises
Yea, yea, and Amen
You have spoken, " It is finished!"
Abides my soul in Him
 
Sin's power over me is broken
I have victory in Christ
My cost, just to surrender
You've paid the ransom price
 
Cleansed, O Hallelujah
New beginnings, praise You Lord
Saving grace all sufficient
Faith believing in Your Word
 
Burden bearer precious Jesus
Lowly Saviour meek and mild
You have paved the way for sinners
By faith in You (As a little child)

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
