I Take a Pause

I TAKE A PAUSE 


 


I take a pause to remember.... my Lord each blessed day


So thankful that He came seeking


To take my sin away


And surmounted every obstacle that satan at him threw


Used the Word of God to conquer 


His faithfulness He knew


 


So tender hearted was my Saviour 


He loved me ere I knew Him


Yet it was because of my sin


That they took and slew Him


And on that cross drops of blood


The stains of sin prevailed


And left a testimonial sealed


His hands and feet were nailed


 


With pain and agony entrenched 


A broken heart surrendered 


And offered up His life at will


Forever more remembered


Dismissed His spirit by His choice


His power..and His alone


Then to leave to heaven from earth


To His Father's throne


 


O angels recognize His worth


He..the great I Am


And sing their songs of praises there


"How worthy is the Lamb"


We must sing our praises too


And live in full subjection


To that precious Lord of Hosts


Our God and Resurrection! 


 


For soon He's coming back again


We shall see Him face to face


Then live in mansions He's prepared


Such amazing grace


For on that altar of sacrifice


That results in brotherhood 


Is that wondrous cleansing power


Of Jesus's precious blood 


 


To each one who realizes their need


With full acknowledgment of sin


To those contrite and repentant heart's 


The Saviour will come in


And do His special work of grsce


Because of Calvary


Please take a pause in your busy life


This Saviour died for thee!


 


Then to your knees in humble prayer


With "Lord save me a sinner...


I cannot pray any better Lord


For Lord...I'm just a beginner"


But I...truly believe... that You died for 


me


Accept my thanks for so great Salvation


Praise God for Calvary!

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
