I Have the Perfect Picture

I HAVE THE PERFECT PICTURE 


 


I have the perfect picture


Of Jesus in my heart


Framed there by the Holy Spirit


It shall never depart


His blood the cleansing power


That washes away my sin


His thorn crowned brow reminder of


His subjection to God's will


 


The wounds in His hands and feet


The pierce that smote His side


Then to have ... God forsake Him


To hear His heartfelt cry


Compassion had it's finest hour


It saw the Saviour through


When He uttered those blessed words


"Father forgive them...they know not what they do"


 


Yes I have the perfect picture


It's seated in my soul


I know the Lord as personal Friend


And how He loves me so


He's with me every moment


I treasure that for sure


When troubles come to visit


My Lord is always near


 


When I shall see Him face to face


To spend eternity


I won't be suprised when I meet Him


For He's lived in me


That picture I've held dearly


For Jesus never changes


He's the One who takes a life


And gently re-arranges!

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
