Your Sin-Debt
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Your Sin-Debt

Your sin-debt has been paid in full
Stamped in Jesus blood
His ownership of you your new beginning
A life now changed by God
And hallelujah glory be!
Grace begins its manifestations
Operating in love and forgiveness
Each day without cessation

For His wonderful unfailing love
How shall I ever forget
How He came and sought me out
Drawing me nearer yet
Until I could see...finally see
My sins...how great they were
All and only against You God
My standing with You poor

You documented every sin
Yet still provided grace
If I would just repent of them
And seek the Master's face
Now I see it more so clearly
My God how great Thou art
Amazing grace still provided
For every broken and contite heart

And though downtrodden we still look up
For we are held in Your hands
Nothing on earth can ever sever
The strength of those love cord bands
Your Spirit is the binding
The bonding glue of grace
In the deepest part of our spirit
Our faith filled walk You trace

You motivate us to prayer
In fellowship and in praise
Causing us to live rejoicingly
As we spend down here our days
If the world could only know
The cleansing power of the blood of the Lamb
They would attest to Your glory Lord
That You are ...the Great I Am!

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
