From The Garden To The Cross

He set His face like a flint
There was nothing that He would hold back
He was determined to go to Calvary
There was nothing that would change that
In His prayer time with the Father
He had said...not my will but Thine
As always He was a man of His Word
Praise God He kept it!...everytime!

Imagine if you will a God
Who would love His creation so
To humble Himself and become a man
For the Salvation of His soul
In spite of our sinning against Him
His love had forgiveness in mind
Repentance the pathway to glory
What a Father so loving and kind

While we were even yet sinner's 
Jesus went to Calvary's Cross
He died the Just for the unjust
So we wouldn't suffer eternal loss
As hard as though it may seem to believe
There's a saving faith for you
Jesus went Himself to the garden to pray
Maybe it's time you started praying too!

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
