An Individualistic God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


I thank you you're an individualistic God
That you care for everyone
Not one soul is out of reach
But each can know the Son
You are not willing that any should perish
But that all should come to Christ
You made that plain at Calvary
Where He paid our ransom price

That sin should hold us in it's grip
Was not your original plan
But with the disobedience of one
You incorporated so great Salvation
So you could redeem us unto yourself
And restore our position lost
Our Saviour shed His precious blood
And died on Calvary's cross

But death was not a dismal night
Unto you... O our God
For a stone was to be rolled away
And in full view you stood
The risen Lord with scars in place
The feet, the hands, the side
That it was really you
Could never be denied

What a triumph thrilled the air
Such happy jubilation
He's alive! He is Risen!
Ecstatic exaltation!
The Lord of lords and King of kings
Mercy....grace to all
This is the One in whom to believe
Hear ye that Master's call?

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
