Christmas Is The Cross
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Christmas Is The Cross

You lead Christ from the cradle
To a hill called Calvary
He spent His life for others
With love and humility
Who went about forgiving
And pointing men to God
Always obedient to His Father
And obedient to the word

Christmas is the Cross
That gifting of Salvation
Eternal life as a present possession
Great feelings of elation
God was in Christ on our behalf
Behold the Lamb of God
Christmas is the Cross
Where Jesus shed His blood

Christmas is the Cross
Welcome our Immanuel
God with us as Jesus Christ
Ring that gospel bell
Proclaim those needed tidings
That tell us we are lost
Then come and trust in Jesus Christ 
For Christmas is the Cross

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
