Lord Your Resurrection
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith

LORD, YOUR RESURRECTION 


 


Lord your Resurrection is full of living power


Still transforming repentant heart's unto


this very hour


For you arose in wonderment...my God how great you are


The  perfect sacrificial Lamb and bright


and morning star


 


You quicken hearts by your Spirit and


seal them  forever


Not one believer will miss out  being


with the true "life giver".


And praising hearts now sanctified 


sing from their sou's set free


That wondrous blessed gospel story


"Jesus died for me!"


 


O the sorrowful cries of woe to those


In unbelief


Who do not to the Saviour come and


find their sure relief


The many chances that they had but


dismissed them with nonchalance 


Now have come full circle ...to haunt


them in remembrance 


 


Today if you will hear, that still small 


voice of grace


Leave off... whatever at hand and seek 


the Master's face


For waiting there in mercy and forgiveness in full measure


Is that blessed Son of God to give


you heaven's treasure


 


I cannot tell it any better "Jesus died for me"


And lives forever in my heart


praise God for Calvary


Easter comes...I thank you Father


From a sinner saved by grace


For what would I have done without You


For You took this sinner's place!


 


Nightfall comes God rests my soul


No fear of death within


I am sustained by saving grace


My Lord and Resurrection 


If I do not awake on earth ...you'll hear 


the rest of the story


I'll tell it in full measure then..


when I awake in glory!

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
