He Still Wears

He Still Wears

He still wears His wounds from Calvary
As a testimony of what He gave to atone
The cost of our sin too much to pay
For us to settle that debt alone
There was none other so willing
None other of such innocence 
He who knew no sin became sin for us
When we had no way of recompense

His Resurrection as our sure hope
He lives!...Hallelujah Christ lives
He never hid the scars He bore
As the proof of how much He loves
Talk about an endurance test
Lord Jesus went the extra mile
When He could just as easily resigned and said
" I think I'll throw in the towel"

His love for sinner's held Him fast
Fast to an old rugged Cross
Where in fully witnessed agonizing pain
He paid for us...sin's highest cost!
O Hallelujah...O what a Savjour
Who met the criteria of God's demand
A sinless sacrificial offering
Through the death of Calvary's Lamb

Now our Shepherd praise God He leadeth
In the paths of Righteousness
The Spirit as our Guide and Comfort
With plenty of grace to bless us no less 
What a journey with that Saviour
Who goes before us to light the way
Yes Hallelujah. .  O what a Saviour
I'll gladly acknowledge Him any day!

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
