Compassion Squeezed

Compassion Squeezed 

Compassion squeezed out every last ounce
Of love the Lord Jesus had
He poured it out most lavishly 
On both the good and the bad
Love reinforced the worth of it all
The highest price of sin's cost
The God-man laying His life on the line
That day on the old rugged Cross
The God-man laying His life on the line
That day on the old rugged Cross

Love shone forth in marvelous light
Until darkness covered the land
When God had to shut the view from His eyes
For sin He could not stand
And on that day of reckoning
A new beginning was about to unfold
When a glorious Resurrection plan
Would be the happiest story ever told
When a glorious Resurrection plan
Would be the happiest story told

Mark it down as significant
For it became significant to me
When my saving faith in Jesus Christ
Wrought Salvation and Victory
My faith the purest substance
My God's eternal reality
My wonderful Lord...my wonderful Lord
Praise God He now lives in me
My wonderful Lord...my wonderful Lord
Praise God He now lives in me

Compassion squeezed out every last ounce
Of love the Lord Jesus had
He poured it out most lavishly 
On both the good and the bad
Love reinforced the worth of it all
The highest price of sin's cost
The God-man laying His life on the line
That day on the old rugged Cross
The God-man laying His life on the line
That day on the old rugged Cross!

Each day I'm totally overwhelmed
By the love Lord Jesus has for me
That even  in spite of all my sin
His grace has been sufficient for me
The pain He took for the pain I caused
Demands my full surrender
To be forgiven by Him as such
Will be a day I will always remember
To be forgiven by Him as such
Will be a day I will always remember

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
