The Contamination Of Our Sin

The Contaminarion Of Our Sin

The contamination of our sin
Did not repel our God
He knew His transformation power
Would accomplish what it would
And bring a cleansing to our heart's
Through His amazing grace
That when we repented of our sin
We would seek the Master's face

His Word the vehicle of love
For by It in the flesh He came
And showed the world that God is love
His works gave that acclaim
What great healing power bestowed
He on the most needy one's
The deaf would hear the blind would see
And forgiveness for our sins

Our great God gave witness too
All the blessings that were to be received
When His voice from Heaven spoke the Words
In my Son I am well pleased
This the beloved of the Father
In obedience did His will
The contamination of our sin
Wouldn't prevent His Calvary's hill

What forgiveness from the heart
For a debt He did not owe
He took full punishment for our sin
And forgiveness still bestowed
"Father forgive them" our Lord said
"For they know not what they do"
The contamination of our sin
Never lessened His love for you!

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
