God Had To Come

God Had To Come

God had to come and no one else
To deliver us from our sin
For He who made us from the dust
Knew of our wicked heart within
And how far short was our strength
To set us alright again
So He came down in humbleness
To provide Salvation for men

He became the sacrifice
By the which we can be saved
And showed Himself as Lord of all
By His rising from the grave
The gospel still the world's best news
Repent and you shall live
God was in Christ at Calvary
What love that He did give

God had to come...He the Word
And He the Word came as flesh
To identify with His own creation
With the sole purpose to bless
He is not willing that any should perish
But that all should come to Christ
And savingly believe in the glorious gospel
For He paid sin's ransom price!

He came as our fount of blessing
None other fount has such cleansing
Forgiven by the shed blood of Christ
Instantaneously upon our confesson
Though as sinners we deserved Your wrath
You've placed it all upon Your Son
Praise You Lord...praise You Father...praise God You have come!

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
