Lord You Gave

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

Lord You Came

Lord You came in a surprising way
That was really confounding to men
Virgin born by a lowly maiden
In the town of Bethlehem
The angels knew of your humbleness
They knew You were King of kings
What a blessing then that it was unto them
When they were appointed to sing

Glory to God in the Highest
A Saviour is born today
To bring to men liberation of heart
That sin had stolen away
The Light of the world Lord Jesus Christ
Now clothed with humility
The Kingdom of Heaven has come down to you
It's the Lord Jesus Christ...it is He!

What a dynamic is love
Especially in longsuffering
It goes the extra mile for sure
Longing for changes to bring
To see the one's loved be attentive
To the grace that love bestows as such
To acknowledge the goodness of God in their lives
All because of the Master's  touch!

Lord You've proven Your love for us
You went by way of the Cross
Mocked and scorned and beaten by men
Crowned  then with thorns for us
But the blood that dripped with innocence
Still is enough to cleanse us from sin
And its application by repentance and faith
Is of greatest satisfaction to Him!

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
