O Glorious Resurrection

O GLORIOUS RESURRECTION

O glorious Resurrection
The rising of the Son
Eternal life assured to those
Who've trusted in that One
He took death to the grave
The One born of a virgin womb
And since no sin was found in Him
He left an empty tomb!

Herald those loud hosanna's
All praises to that King
Who shed His blood for sinful men
And makes the saved soul sing
Our blest Redeemer Jesus
Became our sacrificial Lamb
He is the Word, God come in the flesh
All Holy...Great I Am!

So glorious Resurrection
I've placed my trust in Thee
And your Spirit reassures
I've life and liberty
Those chains of sin that bound me
And bound me fast you know
You have broken those fetters by
Loose him! And let Him go!

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
