When The Shepherd Came
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

When the Shepherd came to shepherds
Upon that Christmas day
It was as a babe in a manger
The Truth...the Life...the Way
In His wondrous Incarnation
As God became a man
Immanuel God was with them
As Jesus the great I Am

Heaven could not refrain from singing
Their highest hosannas that day
For glory came down from Heaven to abide
With those who'd gone astray
And a life lived without one sin
Became sins full sacrifice
His shed blood obtained our redemption
Praise God for Jesus Christ

To know the Shepherd with such love
There is no greater acclaim
To be a sinner saved by grace
Through trusting in Jesus name
Praise God I repented of my sin
When I learned of Calvary
I now am shepherded in my faith
By His Spirit living in me

O Shepherd I'm glad you came
For a sinner such as I
And for the wealth of your forgiveness
Which money can never buy
Just a broken and a contrite heart
Are precious in your site
O for a soul to make a choice
To receive you Lord tonight!

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
