There Is One Tomb

THERE IS ONE TOMB


 


There is one tomb that was empty


But held a body three days


Then angels attended the grave site


And said to a maiden with praise


He's not here...He's arisen!


Just as He had said


Destroy this temple and in three days


I'll rise again from the dead


 


Go and tell the disciples


Make this their gladest day


The Son of God has arisen


The life, the truth, and the way!


Death cannot keep you captive


I've won that victory!


I have the keys to death and hell


And died so you may be free


 


What message to give unto others


Sin cannot hold you down


Jesus Christ has provided a way


That One who was thorn-crowned


For by that cross of Calvary


Was blood that can cleanse one from sin


Come to Him now...have faith and believe


Let your "new life" begin!

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
