Glad Remembrance
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I have a glad remembrance of

"My" Resurrection Day

When I, dead in trespasses and sin

Was given an exoneration "stay"

No more to be held against me were

The sins of all my past

But now "new life" in Jesus Christ

Was given me at last


What a Saviour was that Lord

Who took my penalty

And offered up Himself instead

To gain me liberty

Hope now birthed a resting place

In this heart of mine

Goodbye O "fear of death" forever

I've found "His riches" sublime


Salvation in my Saviour's name

In Him who shed His blood

Discarding grave clothes three days later

Showing Himself alive, our God!

And what a mighty God He is

Who stands, still in my place

My High Priest who lives forever

My "Resurrection's" Grace 


For Jesus Christ in regal robes

Brought forth emancipation

His righteousness in which I'm clothed

Has wrought "so great salvation"

With this new life I'm doubly blessed

I'm living here on earth

Waiting for the glory when

My loved one's find "new birth"


He's coming again O yes He is

O yes He is indeed

He's placed within each believing heart

A fertile spiritual seed

It will grow and keep on growing

For He waters them quite well

Heaven has an entrance for

Those delivered from Hell

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
