Keep Embracing The Cross

Keep embracing the Cross
For it shall never lose its power
His blood still sufficient for the forgiveness of sin
His grace still available each hour
What a lovely name...
The name of Jesus Christ
See Him in His suffering
Our living Sacrifice!

It was not His sin that placed Him there
For He was placed there by our God
The greatest thing that He was ever guilty of?
He was found completely guilty of love
The whole of our sin He bore for us
On the Cross that day
Past, present, and future
He has power to wash them away!

The Cross is the emblem of love
The Lord Jesus Christ was lifted up
And every heart that repents of sin
One day with Him shall sup!
He arose that I might be raised
No wonder my heart shouts hallelujah!
When you place your faith in Jesus Christ
It's like Heaven is brought unto yah...

O come and enjoy a life
That is totally out of this world
It here!...right in front of you!
It's found in God's blessed Word!
It has authenticity. .hallelujah!
Though they've tried to extinguish it such
The Word of God will preserve for ever
For it alone has Heaven's touch!

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
