He Died for Me

HE DIED FOR ME

 

 

 

He died for me that I might live

 

And lives for me that I might die

 

There was nothing that I could give

 

He gave His all and rose on High.

 

 

 

This new song He's given me

 

Comes from a soul that's fully blest

 

Sings this heart of mine so free

 

Sings this soul a song of rest.

 

 

 

I am resting, trusting Jesus

 

Day by day, I have His power

 

Moment by moment enjoying His presence

 

Till we meet, in that final hour.

 

 

 

When face to face I shall behold Him

 

He who came and died for me

 

When all heaven breaks loose in Hallelujah's

 

What a glorios day that will be 

 

 

 

Just thinking about it, I shout Glory

 

Glory, Glory be unto that Lamb

 

Clothed in robes of Christ own Righteousness

 

In the very presence of the Great I Am!

 

 

 

Swift I bow with tongue confessing

 

Jesus You are Lord and Saviour

 

I believed, because of Your Word

 

In that, I'm found, in the Fathers' Favor.

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
