All My Righteousness
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


ALL OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

All our righteousness is as filthy rags
According to God's word
It places the emphasis upon oneself
Which thinking is absurd

For God He knows the human heart
And what mess it's in
Deceitful and desparetly wicked
Clothed with the darkness of sin

We fall short of the glory of God
For it is only found in the Son
A repentant heart with confession of sin
Leads us to that One

Who took our place at Calvary
And shed His precious blood
To give us glorious victory
Where once condemned we stood!

I now have righteousness clothed in Him
Who took this sinner's place
And offer up my praise to Him
For such amazing grace

Removed as far as the east from the west
My debt for sin is gone
And now I stand in Jesus Christ
With heaven as my home!

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
