O What Song the Stone Could Sing
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

O what song the stone could sing
On Resurrection Day
When it was moved by angels' hands
Showing where our Lord did lay

The dirt as well as it did creak
When being under such pressure
Sang a song of rapturous bliss
Sang it in full measure

The chosen angels wore a smile
I'm sure from ear to ear
In their announcement to frightened Mary
"He's Risen! He's not here!"

Absolute astonishment
Sent her on a mission
Telling His disciples
This wasn't just a vision

Listening to her story
Which sounded a tad absurd
They thought they better check it out
From what they had just heard

Back they ran to investigate
The story that Mary chose
Hastening into the empty tomb
They saw His linen clothes

Did utter chaos rule the day
When Jesus Christ arose
All of nature testified
"He's defeated all His foes!"

Jesus then revealed Himself
To the others during the day
Telling them of His wondrous power
He would be with them alway

Giving them their commission
Go ye therefore and teach
He the written and living Word
What message we have to preach

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
