Hurry Back to the Father

HURRY BACK TO THE FATHER


 


Looking forward to the joy


That before Him was set


Jesus went to Calvary's cross


To release from satan's net


The grave was suprised at His tenure


Three days and He was gone


Glad proclamation filled the air


He's not here! He has arisen!


 


Some of His followers fishermen


Began their new careers


They would become fishers of men


Until their dying years


And then their deaths' jubilation!


Present with the Lord


Confirmation of their faith


In God's Holy Word


 


Hurry back to the Father


His arms are open wide


Forgiveness without measure


Flows from Jesus' side


Blood that cleanses from sin


Washes white as snow


Love stretched out at Calvary


Makes the sinner whole


 


`Ah spring is in the air


Freshness, new life, vigour


Good Friday is on It's way


Then celebration, Easter!


All glory to the cross of Christ


His utterance "It is finished!"


Whose light doth shine eternally


And never shall diminish.

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
