Jesus Took My Place

JESUS TOOK MY PLACE
 
In courts of Heaven's splendor
The choir has been singing
Only an interruption when
New members angels bring in
Hallowed are those halls of praise
What amazing grace
Sing the songs of saints forever
Jesus took my place
 
In their lineup placements
The smallest to the tall
Adjusting their positions
For that final curtain call
The alto's and soprano's
Baritone's and base
Continually rejoice singing
Jesus took my place
 
Echoes off the diamonds
Rubies, emarlds, sapphire
Coming back to mesmorize
Heaven's blood bought choir
Standing on those streets of gold
A smile on every face
Sing the saints of old and now
Jesus took my place

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
