God You Came
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



God You came to show us grace

You came to show us love

Sin could not hold back Your care

You came from heaven above

And we in our unrighteousness

Knew not your mercy mission

That You would come in redemptive power

To give us spiritual vision


Lost we were in darkened state

No one to show us favour

But You took on a human form

And came to us as Saviour 

Love poured  out from Calvary

Where there Thy precious blood

Removed the stains of guilt upon us

And brought us nigh to God


How can a soul express the wonder

Sin has lost it's power

And God's Spirit lives within

Each day and every hour

Who cannot sing a song of praise

For what our God has done

For God so loved the world He gave

His only begotten Son


Here is love for all mankind

Enough to go around

To cover the whole world He made

To bring to hallowed ground

But only sinner's saved by grace

Can offer worthy praise

Back to the One esteemed the "Best"

Who is the "Ancient of Days"


Love unending, mercy, grace

It is available  still

God's provision for each sinner

For  whomsoever will

Call upon this God today

Hear His still small voice

Now's the time for decision making

Make Jesus Christ your choice!

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
