Saved by the Ceucified One

How can you put a price
On forgiveness for your sin
We know the cost to bear it
Robs us of true life living.

Burdens become heavier
When we don't know where to turn
This is a true life lesson
That we'd do well to learn.

Early in a person's life
Is the time to pray
And seek to do the Father's will
Simply trust and obey.

Seek the Creator while He may be found
Rejoice in youthful days
Offer sacrifices from your heart
Return to Him your praise.

Abundant life so jubilant
He's our inward desire
Each day He proves Himself anew
Lifts our spirits higher.

For at the cross He paid the price
Our debt now null and void
What came against us, satan's power
Our Saviour has destroyed.

And lives He does, He does He lives
All glory be that name
Ever interceding for us
Who've called upon His name.

Now all power in heaven and earth
Is given to the Son
Blessed be His Resurrection Power
Saved by the Crucified One.

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
