We Watched Him Live
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


We watched Him live to die
He died that we might live
Such the heart of our dear Lord
To give… give… give
And He came looking for us
When we had gone astray
In spite of the sinners that we were
He came to make a way

And make a way He did
By the way of Calvary’s Cross
He took our sin upon Himself
So we wouldn’t suffer loss
And there His precious blood was shed
That only He could give
Repent my brother look to Him
Look to Him and live… live… live!

Still that Cross of Calvary
Has a blood bought power
Our Lord still is mighty to save
And make a vile one pure
Come and eat and drink my friend
Taste and see that the Lord is good
Draw nigh to God while still you may
He will make it understood

The Cross it standeth fast
It’s foundation is secure
Jesus Christ Our living Head
The written and living Word
And when His name is lifted up
It has such drawing power
Praise God He still is mighty to save
Come to Him this hour!

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
