God of Our Salvation
To you, O Lord, all our praise is due;
You have shown that your love is true
Lord, hear our prayers for this nation;
You alone are the God of our salvation.
We have turned far from your holy way;
We are confused, we wander and stray.
Remind us Lord of all the things you do,
Open our eyes and turn us back to you.
In loving mercy you hear our prayer,
We’re surrounded by evil everywhere.
Come quickly Lord, be swift to answer,
The wickedness spreads like a cancer.
Lord in loving thanks we bow to you,
Knowing your promises are ever true.
You alone atone for our transgression;
You alone are the God of our salvation.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
