What Words

What words that blessed the disciples
And gave them focused vision
He's not here... He's alive!
Praise God the Lord has risen
When Mary shared that testimony
The disciples could hardly contain
They ran into His very tomb
And empty out they came

Yes His linen clothes were there
There was no doubt about that
But where was the body wrapped in them
Where was Jesus at
They soon would find some answers
To that question they did relish
When along with the Lord
They ate some bread and fish

Praise God for the glory of it
This three day temple raised
Jesus Christ in human form
May Jesus Christ be praised
God with us Immanuel
The Creator of this earth
Offering us so great Salvation
Through the process of new birth

Now nearer is my God to me
Through Jesus Christ The Son
I have forgiveness for my sin
Each and every one
Hallelujah for the Cross
For the Lamb for sinner's slain
Hallelujah for His Resurrection power
Praise God that Jesus came!

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
