I Stand in the Strength of Calvary
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I STAND IN THE STRENGTH

I stand in the strength of Calvary
The cross my emblem true
An indelible mark upon my heart
The Saviour brought me too
When the plight of sin overwhelmed me
I knew I was undone
And praise God saw the light of day
When I trusted in His Son

The burdens are enormous
When left to bear alone
That's why He says to cast each care
Upon the Lord alone
A treasured earthen vessel
Is one who trusted Christ
For He is strong that Worthy One
Who paid our ransom price

The grave it could not hold Him
And it won't hold us too
That Resurrection power of Jesus Christ
Will take us to Heaven too
So in His strength I rest assured
I know my soul is saved
That final enemy that sin laid out
It has an empty grave!

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
