The Resurrection
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


THE RESURRECTION

The Resurrection changed the lives
Of those who followed Christ
Who knew the meaning of the cross
Who saw that sacrifice
Who gave a testimony true
For they had walked with Him
Surely this was Jesus Christ
The Man who conquered sin!

He said that He would rise again
And rise again He did
To those who's eyes are blinded by Satan
Is that gospel hid
But the very Light of the world
Who is our blessed Lord
Gives an assurance of eternal life
It's written in God's word

He's the written and living Word
That Word becoming flesh
And clothed Himself in human form
This God of Righteousness
Who still can raise the dead To life
And quicken by His Spirit
He's that fountain of refreshing
Come brother now draw near it!

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
