The Cross Is Empty

The Cross Is Empty

The Cross is empty
As well the tomb
We have a Saviour
Who delivers from doom
Who reigneth over us
Because He lives
And so great Salvation
To us He gives

He paid our sin debt
Yes everyone
His blood sufficient
To get it done
Where in the garden
Upon His knees
He gave up His will
His Father to please

What love of Jesus
To love us so
To leave yon heaven
For earth below
Where in a fashion
Of humility
He came unto His own
And. . bore Calvary

Lord help me cherish
What You have done
To forgive my sin
And of everyone
Just true repentance
Is Salvation's key
That unlocks the door
To...Faith's Victory!

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
