For the Son of Man is Come

For the Son of Man is Come




For the Son of Man is come


To seek and to save the lost


He still performed this duty


Whiledying on Calvary'scross


Both thieves had opportunity


To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ


One remained a steadfast scoffer


The other entered Paradise




His Salvation was most blessed


To thousands of those who heard


The power of the Son of God


Was manifested by His Word


As nature obeyed its Master


When He spoke they well took heed


The wind and the water became still


The disciples more fully believed




We have a wonderful Saviour


Can He deliver? Rightfully so!


He lives in us by His Spirit


Our Guide unto heaven we know


Forgiveness is flowing within us


Forgiven, we can now forgive


Our sins have been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb


We live now, we live now, we Live!




Resurrection power has raised us


New creatures in Christ now are we


Because He lives, we shall live also


Praise God for eternity


Fear of death has departed


Hell no longer has hold


What message we have to tell to the world


A greater story has never been told!




So Lord I'm thanking You again


Thanks for the So Great Salvation


Thank You for saving my soul from sin


For breaking the yoke of damnation


They could not keep You in that tomb


Yes, the stone, You had rolled away


You probably spoke, unto it "Move!"


And the rock You made obeyed!

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
