How Fitting

How fitting for the Lord to hang
Between two thieves that day
Showing that you can be saved
When repentance comes your way
Right up to his dying breath
Our Lord was quick to forgive
And offered everlasting life
To whomsoever will believe

And that believing thief laid hold
Of a truth that never fails
Even though Christ was held fast
By those imbedded nails
Nothing could hold back our Lord
From offering pardon there
Ánd so He did and the thief received
Eternal life to share

Praise God we don't have to wait
Until our dying breath
But we can believe the moment that
In Him we put our faith
Nothing can rob the sinner saved
Saved by the blood of the Lamb
And Jesus welcomes us as well
He....the Great I Am!

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
