Lord It Takes Your Great Love

Lord It Takes Your Great Love

Lord it takes Your great love
To hold back Your judgment on sin
Waiting on each person
With Your longsuffering
Plentious in mercy 
And in grace as well
Not willing that any should perish
And wind up in Hell!

Lord You sent Your own Son
To die in our place
To endure all men's mockery
And endure such disgrace
But Your love let the accounting
For our sin be our will
With the offer of forgiveness
To repentant heart's still!

Lord it takes Your great love
To put up with our sin
When You are the Holiest
That there ever has been
But one day our accountability 
Will have a reckoning day
Wise are those repentant one's 
Who know Christ as the Way!

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
