He Set His Face
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


He set His face like a flint
For the mission He had there
On His journey to Jerusalem
That sacrificial sin bearer
The cross He bore was heavy
That He carried to Calvary
But the cross He bore for our sin debt
Was a heavier agony

The debt we owed was massive
None other could pay our due
Our sinless, spotless, sacrifice
The Lamb, was in full view
As a sheep before her shearers is dumb
So openeth He not His mouth
To His Father and the thief He spoke
Then let His last breath out

The spear was thrust into His side
Out poured water and blood
So not one bone of His was broken
As prophesied by our God
Wounded for our transgressions
Bruised for our iniquities
Sin took its final payment
And thought to take its ease

Gods' satisfaction with that payment
He proved it to all His foes
Three days buried in a borrowed tomb
Then up from the grave He arose
That's got to send some shivers
Up the believers spin
O Glory!........ HaLLELUJAH!!!
That risen Saviour's mine!!!!!

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
