Only One Individual
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

There is only one individual
Unto whom to our dying breath
That we praise and celebrate His birth
And we celebrate His death
For hope was birthed within us
At the coming of the Son
And deliverance came through Jesus Christ
In His sacrificial offering

The name that is above every name
That God Himself has named
For by faith alone upon this One
A transformation is obtained
Bound we were in the flesh
And under condemnation
But Christ provides forgiveness for sin
And has offered a so great Salvation

So celebrate that wondrous birth
And the day of His life's cessation
Where all of our sins were placed upon Him
In open manifestation
For death provided compensence
For no greater life had paid
The total ransom for our sin
Then in a grave was laid

And three days later Resurrection!
Hope blazing in full glory
Celebration of His birth and death
And alive again O glory!
His Word preserved and steadfast
For it shall never fall
The Lord of lords Lord Jesus Christ
Only One individual!

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
