God Placed Our Sin-Debt

God Placed Our Sin-Debt

God placed our sin-debt on Christ's account
So that we might be free
To offer us up a taste of forgiveness
Of our sins forgiven!...completely!
Beneath that Cross of Jesus Christ 
Is offered Salvation's Cup
And it only became available
When the Lord Jesus was lifted up...

So turn your eyes upon Jesus Christ
For there's life in the Crucified One
There's no other that can offer such a pardon
Then the Lord Jesus...God's only begotten Son
There's a personal relationship awaiting
To be had by any in need
Come today with a heart of repentance
And you will find a Friend indeed!

Experience Resurrection's power
By the same Spirit that has raised Christ
You that are dead in trespasses and sins
He has paid "in full" your ransom price
Make faith's application your's today
To find your soul's sweet relief
Are you having a problem to come to the Cross?
May the Lord help your unbelief

Calvary covered it all
Although it took an old rugged Cross
Where our dear Saviour was placed upon it for me
So I needn't endure that cost
Now my soul is rejoicing
For I have believed on that One
My Triune God of Righteousness 
In the Father, the Spirit, and the Son!

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
