The Lord High And Lifted Up

The Lord High and Lifted Up

The Lord high and lifted up
My daily resolution
King of Kings and Lord of lords
Who brought forth sin's solution
And took from Satan ownership
In whomsoever trusts in Him
And turns each sinner into a saint
When they are born again

God Almighty in Jesus Christ
The Lamb for sinner's slain
And every soul that trusts in Him
Again I say amen!
For He is for us not against us
Wise are those who see
God in Christ reconciling unto Himself
This lost humanity

O the glory of it all
My Saviour rose again
Death received a "death sentence"
Never to sting again
And each believing heart receives
A witness bearing Spirit
High and lifted up my Lord
I want each one to hear it

There's a Word for you my friend
Give it serious consideration
A Salvation available like none other
Great cause for jubilation
For Jesus Christ praise God He lives
Our life as Resurrection
Not one error ever found in Him
He did life to perfection!

And so He still pours out love
Fresh from Calvary
Look and live my brother live
Salvation's available there for thee
Still high and lifted up
His status never changing
Come to Him... Repent! ... Believe!
He'll do the rearranging!

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
