Glad Salvation
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

Ts the day of glad salvation,
Glory be to God on high!
Christ became our Jubilation,
Praise Him, Honor, Magnify!

All ye saints in robes arrayed,
Clothed with righteousness of the Lamb!
Hail Him, Hail Him! Great Creator;
Alpha, Omega, the Great I Am!

Sin shall lose its alluring pleasures,
Hell has no hold on blood bought men.
Jesus took our place on Calvary,
Soon He's coming back again!

Roll that stone, discard the grave clothes,
Death hath no dominion where Christ lives.
Truly He has bought salvation,
And salvation freely gives!

Will you invite this Lord and Savior,
Into your heart, He'll make you whole.
Completely deliver from sin and sadness,
Bring joy and gladness to your soul!

Heaven awaits in eager earnest,
God the Father, God the Son!
Angels rejoicing in glad expectation,
For another soul that's won!

Whitened harvest seeking reapers,
Who will rise and heed the call?
Dear Lord Jesus, I surrender,
Truly I shall give my all!

You have died, new life gave me,
Can I ought but live for you?
No other name on earth can save me,
Jesus Christ, the Lord, the Truth!

Gary J. Smith Copyright July 21, 1993

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
