THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST

The Cross of Jesus Christ
It changes everything
Turns a sinner into a saint
Makes the joy bells ring
Forgiveness finds it's Master
The heart a new
found home
Heaven as it's dwelling place
His Spirit now our own

And O that deep deep love of Jesus
With fountain Everlasting
Has power to save to the uttermost
Each soul that would ask Him
A humble soul that repentantly
Calls upon the Son
Finds His grace sufficient for
That guilt of every sin

In the wholeness that He giveth
His blood has cleansing power
Full redemption through the Saviour
Still present at this hour
O needy one don't fail to find
The treasure beyond measure
But put your trust in Jesus Christ
In whom you'll true pleasure!

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
