Lord You've Paid For The Mortgage

Lord You've paid for the mortgage
My title reads..."full and clear"
The sin debt that I owed dear Lord
You gave your life to secure
Now I'm on hallelujah avenue 
In an neighborhood of Your own making 
And all of my neighbors say thank you Lord
For your glorious undertaking!

Thank you Lord...thank you
For saving a wretch like me
For when I was up to my neck in sin-debt
Praise God your grace covered me
Bought and paid for...hallelujah!
Praise God for the blood of the LAMB!
My titled secured in the Book of Life
It is written says the great I am!

Sealed by the Holy Spirit
My power of Attorney if you please
Bought and paid for sealed and delivered 
For the angels in Heaven to see 
They too now sing hallelujah's
For the song of each soul that's set free
Who will take up their residences in Heaven one day
When begins their eternity!

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
