Christ Tallied Up

Christ Tallied Up

Christ tallied up the cost of our sin
And took it to the Cross
His blood was the sufficient Sacrifice
For there He became sin for us
God was highly pleased with this
In that He raised Christ from the dead
Now any person who truly repents
Finds God's blessings and favour...instead!

Christ counted the cost in the beginning
When God drew up Salvation's plan
He had every intent to obey His Father
No matter the onslaught from men
His life was lived for others praise God!
Showing love with such a trait of compassion
Still He calls unto those who have trusted in Him
To live themselves in like manner and fashion...

There's never a day now that goes by
But I lend to it praise and thanksgiving
For the joy of my heart is my strength in the Lord
The awesomeness of His grace forgiving
For all of my transgressions were weighty indeed
To much of a heavy  burden to bear
And I found when I cast all of my cares upon Him
Praise God He became my sin bearer!

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
