It's Hard For Us To Imagine

It's hard for us to imagine
The concept of a God
Who would humble Himself as such
And endure sins chastening rod
To restrain from using power
That only He was capable of
And let men vent so callously
Such is the love of God

Hanging there in open shame
Though He did not deserve that lot
Taking full punishment for our sin
Though the recipients knew it not
And love poured out from Calvary
For all mankind that day
And the precious blood of Jesus Christ
Washed every sin away

Death thought it had a victory
In the victim that it choose
But was surprised three days hence
When the Son of God arose
And offered hope as a present possession
Through faith when we believe
His goodness and His saving grace
Are adornments we receive!

He arose! The echoing sound I hear
On Resurrection Day
Rejoicing believers cannot abstain
From praising God always
And heart's that know forgiveness have
A song of a soul set free
Praise God my Saviour came to save
To save a sinner like me!

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
