Jesus Took Full Ownership
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Jesus took full ownership of every sin I had
He paid my sin debt now my soul is free
No longer under condemnation praise the Lord for that
My life exchanged for one living abundantly
He generates the energy now I have in Him
His Spirit by His Resurrection power
With peace and joy superintending daily in my life
His eye is on this sparrow every hour

The songs they come in fittingly
As the Spirit leads
For He knoweth full well He's my chief Desire
Praise God for that precious, precious name of Jesus Christ
T'is my desire to lift it even higher
So wake up soul and set your sights
On the man of Galilee
Who walked upon His earth and on His water
Who's given forth the Word of Life to guide our destiny
May it be that to which my soul aspires

Hallelujah praise that name That name of Jesus Christ
Heaven sent its best to die for me
All my righteousness as filthy rags dung compared to His
Praise God for the Lamb of Calvary
Stamped with God's approval sealed by the Spirit
Living under new ownership so divine
I know my Redeemer liveth He's living now within
Yes praise God I'm His and He is mine!

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
