Lord You Became

Lord You Became 

Lord You became sin's Crusher
And squeezed the death out of it
And brought to life...life everlasting
Praise God for the awesomeness of it
By just one name and only one...
You have sanctified Heaven's decree
That whomsoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
Hallelujah has liberty!

Joyed are the people who know their God
For great are the works He has done
We can be consistent in our praise
All thanks to that Crucified One
For for the joy that was set before Him
He endured all of God's wrath and the shame
So that one day He could give...that glad declaration
" It is I... O be not afraid..."

O we serve a risen Saviour...
Sins Emancipator...amen!
Praise God for that name of Jesus Christ
Who loveth like none other can
Who carried our burdens to Calvary
And at the foot of an old rugged Cross
Shed His blood...His own precious blood
For the cleansing of sin for us!!!

Shed His blood...His own precious blood
For the cleansing of sin for us!!!

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
