Resurrection Ground
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

RESURRECTION GROUND

I'm established on the shore
Of Resurrection ground
No longer tossed by billows
Where the sea of sin abounds

His mighty Word has saved me
His Word that calmed the sea
That spoke the universe into being
That said, "Come unto Me."

Pass away earth and heaven
His Word will still abide
His Word, the Son, the Spirit
Has opened Heaven wide

Behold I see the angels
Sing worthy is the Lamb
All bow and kneel before Him
Who is the great I Am

He rolls away the stone
He sets the captives free
Resurrection's shoreline
Has footprints left by me

I'm walking in the shadow
Of that rugged cross
Looking unto Jesus
Who suffered for my loss

Ahead in wondrous splendour
Of Resurrection light
Are welcome arms of the Saviour
What grand and glorious sight!

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
