Justa thinking!

Christmas is nearing and a thought to write a poem in response to such a day of celebration spawned this poem... I trust you will enjoy...

He Came

He came He came Immanuel
God with us no less
The earth would never have another
That would surely bless
In sin's saturation
Came the Sinless One
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Salvation" perfect plan

To grant us full repentance
The changing of our ways
And offer grace and mercy freely
Hallelujah... Praise!
What loving God and Father
Expressed fully in the Son
Birthed in divine accordance
Praise You Holy One

And heavy hearts are lightened
Burdens fall away
Those who walked in darkness
Now see the Light of Day
Set your soul a singing
Redemption draweth nigh
Call upon this blessed Saviour
Receive the gift of Eternal Life

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
