Unbelievable the loneliness Jesus felt
When nailed to the Cross that day
He came unto His own and His own received Him not
God Himself turned His back away
He gave of His love so willingly
His compassion it knew no bounds
When we discover that Salvation is Him
Praise God that's when joy is found

He's always there, His love is everlasting
No burden that is too heavy to bear
He's the Lord of lords and Prince of peace
Wherever you call upon Him He is there
Absolute and steadfast in His integrity
Not one sin to Him was ever fastened
He lived His life as a sinless Saviour
And He died as well in like fashion

Just the once the totality of our sin
Was placed upon Him, that we might be free
Then His final utterance " It is finished!"
Still echoes down the corridors of history
Don't be like that one thief on the Cross
Who tried to rob our God of His glory
But today...today!...If you hear God's still small voice
Be a partaker...of His unbelievable story!

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
