We Have Something to Sing about

WE HAVE  SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT


 


We have something to sing about


And sing it O so well


Our Lord Jesus has arisen


Defeated sin, and death, and hell


The grave it could not hold Him


When the stone was rolled away


There were only grave clothes


He arose to meet the Day!


 


His followers were ecstatic


When they realized


Yes the Lord had risen indeed


Boy were they suprised


To have the Lord amongst them


Eating fish and bread


He has arisen! He has arisen!


Just as He had said


 


Now His Resurrection 


Became theirs as well


To every tribe and nation


They had a story to tell


A sinless, spotless Saviour 


Is alive for evermore


Only One entrance way to heaven


Christ, He is the Door!


 


To know one's sins forgiven


There's nothing more refreshing


He is our Water and our Bread


We find upon confessing


That we, lost needy sinners 


Once destined to "sure death"


Find we have "new life" in Him


Our "Resurrection " breath


 


Thank God for Salvation 


Nothing like it on earth


To know Christ as our Saviour 


To have "a second birth"


To be in with that number


When yonder roll is called


It is simply amazing


In fact, I'm still enthralled! 


 


I sing about that Saviour 


Who gladdens saddened hearts 


Who took my sin upon Himself


To give me a "new start"


Who is my "Resurrection "


I've found "new life" in Him


And I confidently proclaim as well


"My Lord, He has arisen!

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
