Earthly Crown
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Though they crowned Him with a crown of thorns

It was befitting for that King

For He had offered Himself for us

Committed to suffer anything.


Redemptions price, His own shed blood

Poured out at Calvary

There it dripped from head to toe

His blood poured out for me


How could that be the ransomed price

For sinner’s such as us

The angel’s marveled as they watched

The actions on the cross.


Silence came to honour Him

Death had its final power

Grave’s victory was doomed forever

At Resurrection’s Hour


That birth!  That death! That risen King!

That name that is Renowned

What glory due our Heavenly King

When He wears His earthly crown.

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
