Jesus Christ And Him Crucified

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

Lord may that my message be
To lift Him up in conversation
When given the opportunity
To tell of the One who gives Salvation
And turns darkness unto Light
Who can forgive the chiefest of sinners
Offering hope and eternal life

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified
Look to the Lamb of God
Who endured our punishment for sin
According to God's Word
With a love beyond all measure
Dying the Just for the unjust became
And bore our sins on Calvary
Praise God for that blest name!

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified
Be dear to my heart I pray
May I never forget the gift
That my Saviour brought my way
A Resurrection by His Spirit
Bears witness to my own
That praise God I am redeemed
Assured presence at God's Throne

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified
Crown Him with many crowns
Who can change the vilest life
And turn it all around
Where praise emits and glorifies
From a soul that is satisfied
Who has tasted and seen that the Lord is good
Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

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
