Our Earthen Vessel

Our Earthen Vessel

Our earthen vessel is a treasure chest
When we come to know the Lord
Indwelt thereby by the Holy Spirit
And equipped to share His Word
Because of our God's worthiness
How worthy was the Lamb
Untainted by one single sin
Yes!...He the Great I Am

An heir and joint heir with Jesus Christ
God's home our destiny
Living with such wondrous hope
Because of Calvary
Knowing He lives withn me
In His Resurrection power
And that some day I shall arise
He knows which day and hour

Faith built on His faitfulness
Hallelujah...praise the Lord
Rock solid is my foundation
My Cornerstone His Word
That Word which passeth not away
Praise God He doeth all things well
With my mind set on the Heavenlies
And joying in this earthen vessel

I thank you heavenly Father
That You came to seek and to save
And wish not that one soul should perish
But accept the Salvation that You gave
For You alone can make an end to sin
For You are Purest Righteousness
And can make our earthen vessels clean
By the shed blood of Jesus Christ!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
