What Love

WHAT LOVE

When Jesus Christ was lifted up
He caused all the world to see
Here was a love beyond comprehension
Given so men might be free
Sin what havoc it brought us
The plan that satan did hatch
Death found its final conqueror
And dually had met its match

Christ holds the key of Heaven
In fact He is the door
By which if any man enter in
He shall live forever more
Endless, boundless, mercy
Enjoying abundant grace
How wonderful fellowship here
Looking forward to see His face

His Word what glad satisfaction
The preaching of the cross to me
All my sin and its consequences
Were dealt with at Calvary
Behold the open sepulcher
No body left in that tomb
We serve a risen Saviour
At the cross for you there is room

Not willing that any should perish
But that all should come to Christ
God Himself became our offering
And paid the ransom price
For God so loved the world
He became the begotten Son
Securing the supreme sacrifice
By dying for everyone

Unparalleled love,unfathomable
God's love for me and for you
So great salvation's Benefactor
He brought the victory through
Now we stand fast in His triumph
Behold the risen Lamb
God's love, His wonderful love
Is Jesus the great I AM.

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
