The Gift

The gift of God is eternal life
Through Jesus Christ the Lord
No greater gift could ever be given
Than what's founded upon the Word
That Word who one day became flesh
And dwelt amongst His own
And yet His own received Him not
Yet who for... their sin did atone

But to those who would receive Him
He gave with authorataive power
The ability to become the sons of God
Instantaneous on their believing hour
What an enlightening moment
When faith's transaction's done
Transported from the kingdom of darkness
And into our God's kingdom

Wise are those who receive Him
For who else has an offer as such
He takes our sin and exchanges it with grace
Because He loves us so very much
What great...gift giver Lord Jesus
Who has come to our defence
When we recognize what sinner's we are
And blesses our desire for repentance

Thank you dear heavenly Father
That all the people of earth You cherish
Willing that they should come to know Christ
Not willing that any should perish
You've made it simple as all get out
That even a child can understand
Whomsoever shall call on the name of the Lord
They're gifted for Gloryland!

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
