God Came Himself

God Came Himself

God came Himself as Jesus Christ
Hallelujah for the Cross
The Creator humbled Himself as man
And endured such significant loss
To be spit upon and crowned with thorns
And beaten like none other before
Man of sorrows and aquainted with grief
Yet became our blest sin-bearer

The most Holy of holies God the Son
Who without one sin upon Him
Took our place as our blessed Redeemer
To offer us a clean slate..."Forgiven!"
Now redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
Irreversible our so great Salvation
And born again by the Spirit of God
Upon repentance we've become a new creation

Hallelujah for that Cross of Christ
The world's utmost Purifier
Who can take the lowest of sinful man
And give that heart a new desire
To seek to do the will of God
From a heart that's been totally changed
Come now you who are longing to be blessed
There's a meeting place God can arrange!

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
