I Love You

I LOVE YOU

A prized possession of Jesus Christ
A prized possession am I
How I praise Him for deliverance
From sin that draweth nigh
His love came in glorious fashion
To save a wretch like me
Creations Wonder from the beginning
Died on a cruel tree.

Drops of blood, crimson evidence
He shed those drops for me
The empty tomb our Sure Foundation
Can set each sinner free
Victory summons its opponents
Look there to the cross!
When I cried, "It is finished"
My Words don't suffer loss.

I have come, Life Eternal
I offer to each one
Sufficient just by faith, I give it
Grace here from the Son
Though your merit such damnation
For the sins you do
Now accept, So Great Salvation
My reason, "I LOVE YOU!"

Read John 3:16

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
