God You Displayed

God you displayed the gamut of life
From Heaven to earth come down
Born of a virgin in Bethlehem 
To the wearing of a painful thorned crown
Yet love with a divine consistency 
Incapable of anything less
You gave of Yourself for our benefit
And became our Resurrection to bless

O yes there was blood....but innocence
Poured from that spear pierced side
As well as the droppings from his hands and feet
Yet we... hang onto our pride
If God could humble Himself as a man
Then my humbling should occur too
For there on the Cross of Calvary
Creation's Maker gave creation a view

Look and live my brother live
Who are dead in trespasses and sin
Have you no honor for the Lord of life
Has darkness done its capturing
Flee to the Saviour with a repentant heart
He will not turn you away
Better to make sure on this side of Heaven
Then to be robbed of the Light of day

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
