I Recall That Day
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Recall that day

I recall that day at Calvary
When my heart was stirred
I never ever knew before
The power of God's Word
And that the written Word became
The Son of God in flesh
And lived to die and live again
And give us life...endless!

What power in the cleansing blood
That washes sins away
And by His Holy Spirit gives
Us grace to live each day
And with forgiven hearts we too
Forgiveness to others show
And seek to live our lives for God
Who loves saved sinner's so

That day still holds a memory
I shall not soon forget
When all my sin slate was wiped clean
No...I shall never forget
The grace that God bestowed that day
That brought me such relief
Because I repented of my sin
And He blessed then my belief!

Is there a special day that you
Can recall with God
That you knew He heard your prayer
You trusted in His Word
If not friend I beg of you
Let it be today
Meet your Creator at the cross
Let Him have His way!

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
