Man Lost in Sin

MAN LOST IN SIN



Your Goodness, Your Graciousness, Your Greatness

All revealed at Calvary

Man lost in sin and dying

The sinner’s perfect plea

Hallelujah! What a Saviour

Who loved one such as I

Grace that is greater than all my sin

Hanging there to die



Bloodless doctrines of men

Trying always to save face

Can never avail as the blood of Christ

Sufficient to save by grace

The debt that we owe too awesome

To be paid for by another

Except through Christ, our Saviour

Our Kinsmen, Redeemer, and Brother



No other name in heaven

Nor on earth can be said of as well

He died to save His people from sin

God with us, Immanuel!

Up from the grave , He arose!

Sin, death, and hell met defeat

Bow down and worship the King of Kings

Come to His Mercy Seat!

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
