Lord You Took

Lord You Took

Lord You took the deepest wounds
That man could ever bare
And in your steadfast purpose Lord
It was for the good of our despair
The condemnation of sin that held us fast
Was soon to meet sin's breaker
For the complete Fulfiller of the law
Was Christ our Lord and Maker

Now no condemnation has one soul
Who has put their trust in Thee
God stamps His approval on each heart
That knows Christ and by faith has believed
The Spirit of Truth our Comforter
What grace Lord You have bestowed
Now with the.everlasting hope we have
We've a story that has to be told

So great Salvation for each soul
That looks to the Lamb of God
Who's life was spent for our sin
And endured sin's chastening rod
When God poured out His wrath on sin
So great that the whole earth shook
On no greater One than His own dear Son
Lord that penalty meted You took!

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
