Lord You Took Sin
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Lord You Took Sin

Lord You took sin by the scruff 
And made it bow the knee
And by Your rising again from the dead 
You proved Your authority
Now all power in Heaven and on earth
Are Your's by God's degree
Hallelujah for the Saviour You are
Who died upon Calvary's tree

The love that brought You into the world
It still has recognition
And lives are changed still today
Which have a heart of contrition
How You love to reconcile
Men back to God again
Your whole life was dedicated too
The gifting of Salvation's plan

And what a blessed hope we have
In that life hereafter
Where we'll spend eternity
With eternal bliss and rapture
At the very thought of the Cross
Where Your precious blood was shed
To wash our stains of guilt away
And to become our living Head!

Yes Lord we love to praise You
For You're the most deserving of all
With complete obedience unto Your Father
In Your mission You did not fail
Still Your name commands attention
Jesus saves!...Jesus saves!
For Your name Lord still has all the power
To raise men from their graves!

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
