I Stood At Mount Calvary
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Stood At Mount Calvary

I stood at Mount Calvary
And gazed upon my Lord
Knowing my sins...yes every last one
That He had...an absolute record
And I was smitten in my heart
Lord...to me...be merciful
And I received Him there by faith
And my God...was merciful!

Forgiveness came in like a flood 
As I felt its cleansing power
I knew inside I was transformed 
Immediately!...that very same hour
And time took on eternity
For death had lost its grip
I knew the freedom of my lord
The reality of His Lordship

His Spirit witnessed wondrously
And twinned Itself with mine
Me... a recipient... of His amazing grace
From now until the end of time
And praise began it's new beginning 
Thank you...thank you Lord
For the revealing of yourself to me
In the pages of the Word

Faith told hold with victory
I believed...I became God's son
My heirship found its security
By trusting in the Crucified One
Fitted now for my heavenly Home
Clothed in God's righteousness 
Praise God for His so great Salvation
Through whom the world can be blessed!

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
