I Have Crowned Him
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Have Crowned Him

I have Crowned Him Lord of all
For He has all of me
I was a lost and empty soul
Until I understood Calvary
Where for sins that I had done
Yes for each and everyone
God poured out His vengeful wrath
On the person of His Son

When God's love so strong in power 
Took our sin and dealt it death
Blood poured forth from the wounds of Jesus
Until He breathed His final breath
All heaven broke loose at that moment
The vail of the temple rent, the skies grew dark
The silence deafening to those present
The scene surreal and very stark

The perfect Sacrificial offering
The Innocent for guilty men
God was justified in the matter
Never another offering again
Once for all...once for all!
It is finished the cry from Calvary's hill
Christ satisfying completely His Father
For He came to do the Father's will

If we would but repent and believe
With a brokenhearted  contrite manner
Then we'll break forth with a Hallelujah 
With a desire to raise the gospel banner
O I have Crowned Him...yes I have crowned Him
Jesus Christ is Lord of all
Every heart that seeks that Saviour
Will find a Friend that can never fail!

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
