Salvation Came From Heaven

Salvation Came From Heaven

Salvation came from Heaven
God's grace existed on High
Before there ever was an earth
God's gifting was supplied
And for sins exoneration
The perfect Sacrifice
The sinless...spotless...Lamb of God
In the person of Jesus Christ

The angels knew beforehand
The song they were to sing
Glory to God in the Highest
As the earth received her King
With hallowed adoration
The shepherds harkened to
To see the place where the Christ child lay
As the Angel's had led them to do

When they saw the virgin born baby
That joy they could not contain
But off they went rejoicing
The message to proclaim
With angelic confirmation 
They were glorifying and praising God
For all that was told them had come to pass
Now this is the Word of the Lord

Their faith had found its resting place
With its edifice being a manger
For there before them lay the Christ child
To whom sorrow was no stranger
From cradle...to crown...to Cross...to death
For our sin He was beholden
Look and live my brother live
Behold the Lamb and behold Him!

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
