Independent Righteousness
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith

Independent Righteousness

A righteousness independent of us
Is found in Jesus Christ
Who alone has access to the Father
Who was pleased with His ransom price
And He in love, in grace, in mercy
Daily bids us come
To receive the gift of Salvation
By believing in the Son

And joy imparted to those who trust Him
Has such staying power
For the Spirit that lives within
Is with us every hour
And not a day goes by as quickly
As those who know Him such
For we are never the same again
Who've received the Master's touch

A fresh anointing is still available
Confess your sin and see
The faithful and justness of the Father
Who loves unconditionally
So rally troops around the Throne
There's grace at the foot of the cross
The blood of Jesus cleanses still
It shall never suffer loss!

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
