Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!
The accumulation of our sin
Was a weighty cross to bare
Our sins of past, present, and future
Hung Lord Jesus there
But mighty were those arms of love
Stretched out for you and me
Worthy were those feet that walked
And prayed in Gethsemane
From His side poured out water and blood
Not one bone was broken
Fulfilled prophecy to the letter
Thus our God had spoken
Here the Saviour of the world
Obedient to His Father's will
Gave up the ghost and died our death
So He could Deliver still
Deliver still He does our Lord
Sinners He saves by grace
Whomsoever shall call upon Christ's name
Will see Him face to face
He is the Resurrection and the Life
He's conqueror over the grave
Tell the world this story brother
Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

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
