YOU BREATHED INTO MAN THE BREATH OF LIFE




You breathed into man the breath of life


And a living soul he became


We are breathing still today


We breathe to praise Your name


Our hearts are made to pump the blood


That keeps our bodies fit


Yet some men stilldisbelieve


And will hear, none of it




Yet Lord You are so merciful


Your grace much more abounding


While sin takes its toll on men today


Your patience is astounding


Longsuffering is an attribute


No longsuffering One as Thee


You hold back all Your wrath and wait


And love abundantly




Love this world had never known


If Jesus had not come


For God so loved the world He made


He gave His only Son


That Son obeyed His Father's will


And went to Calvary's cross


A forgiving prayer came from those lips


Who caused Him such a loss




His loss of life He took full pain


Sin's punishment and penalty


Were nailed to the cross that day


He paid the debt for me


But death and hell and sin itself


Could not withhold the power


For in three days up from the grave He arose


God's Resurrection Hour




In the early morn at the dawn of day


The stone had a big suprise


For two angels sat upon that rock


And waited for startled eyes


As Mary came to seek the Lord


At first she had great fear


But the angels gave her cheerful words


He's Risen, He is not here




The disciples next, when they heard


They ran into the tomb


They saw His linen clothes set down


They new it was the truth


And He is still the Truth today


Though some men disbelieve


Look my friend to Calvary's Cross


Look! And then believe.................!

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
