He Came Down

He Came Down

He came down to rescue me
And lifted me with love
He took my sin upon Himself
And shed His precious blood
All the condemnation I deserved
He dismissed it when I believed
Praise God for this so great Salvation
When Lord Jesus I received

His love drew me to the Cross
I felt my soul's sinful condition
And realized because of it
My Lord was beaten beyond recognition
He took it all...God's wrath for me
When He Himself knew not one sin
His love for us held Him fast
His death purchased our eternity with Him

Praise God He came down
That we might live on High
Wrought a work of righteousness 
That only He could supply
To make us fit for Heaven
To great the Father there
He came down...He came down
Spread those tidings everywhere

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
