I Can't Forget

I CAN'T  FORGET 


 


I can't forget what Calvary 


Did for me that day


Each time I have remembrance 


In thankfulness I pray


Thanks Lord for salvation


Which I did not deserve


For sending dear Lord Jesus


And giving me new birth


You took the sins of this old world 


You took them everyone


And offered back a pardon too


Who would believe on Christ the Son


Then above that..yet is this


A written guarantee 


Whosoever believeth on Him


Shall live eternally!


 


In that life I now am living


You have kept Your Word


The Holy Spirit blessings giving


Of His presence I'm assured


With thankful and a joyful heart


Each day begins with praise


Nor fear of death to trouble me


For it's the dead You raise


Resurrection and new life


We find our life in Him


Still that Conqueror over death


Still Conqueror over sin


Now we can love our neighbors 


As God said we should


Fellowship with other believers 


Enjoy the brotherhood!


 


I can't forget what Calvary 


Did for me that day 


Each time I have remembrance 


In thankfulness I pray 


Thanks Lord for salvation 


Which I did not deserve 


For sending dear Lord Jesus 


And giving me new birth 


You took the sins of this old world 


You took them everyone 


And offered back a pardon too 


Who would believe on Christ the Son 


Then above that. ..yet is this 


A written guarantee 


Whosoever believeth on Him 


Shall live eternally!

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
