All Have Sinned

All Have Sinned

There's none of us above another
When it comes to God
For every individual
Has life that's in the blood
And that's why Christ's blood was shed
And poured out for our sin
For He alone was virgin born
And had no sin in Him

God's sacrifice was to be to perfection
If it was to be used at all
No blemish to be found whatsoever
That was our Maker's call
For Holy...Holy... Holy
Is our glorious God
To the law and to the letter
Was His grace to be understood

Praise God our perfect Sacrifice
Was in Jesus Christ God's Son
Who willing left His home in Heaven
To die for the sins of men
God was well pleased in that act
And raised Him from the dead
Thereby offering so great a Salvation
Through Him our living Head

Thar you and I are sinner's sir
You know you cannot deny
Your very own heart will condemn you
If you say that that's a lie
Well I've a marvelous message to share
That can put you alright with God
Repent of your sin and turn to Him
Or experience His chastening Rod!

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
