I've Heard The Telling

I've Heard The Telling

Wonderful that birth in the manger
Sinless was the Christ child born that day
Salvation as our gift from the Father
The King come in a most unusual way

I've heard the telling of the cradle
I've heard the telling of the cross
I've heard the telling of the gravesite
All contained the miraculous

Wonderful His death upon Calvary
Every sin was laid upon the Lord
Redeemed by the blood of that Saviour
"It is finished" His utterance we heard

I've heard the telling of the cradle
I've heard the telling of the cross
I've heard the telling of His gravesite
All contained the miraculous 

Wonderful that news at the gravesite
Matchless was the God man Jesus Christ
Rising as our Life and Resurrection
His offering unto us eternal life!

I've heard the telling of the cradle
I've heard the telling of the cross
I've heard the telling of the gravesite
All contained the miraculous

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
