That Jesus Died for Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



May the meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in Thy sight

And mirror the Image of Thy Son

Who always did the right!


Also the words that leave these lips

May they be blessed as well

To show the world there is a change

In those who are saved from hell!


A religious fanatic, as some would say

But is that really true

Though shalt love the Lord God with all your heart

With your strength and mind renewed!


Sweet the echo in the heart

That sings the song of grace

I, am saved, I’m truly saved

And long to see His Face!


So effortless, it is to serve

To tell this Word to others

For I’ve been saved and am redeemed

My sisters and my brothers!


“O happy day that fixed my choice”

Set, this sinner’s soul free

What meditation in my heart

That Jesus died for me!

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
