Don't Diminish

DON'T DIMINISH 

Don't diminish the power of Christ

In rising from the dead

And dismiss it as a fallacy

And fairy tale instead

For the living and written Word

Was flesh and Deity

Coming down from heaven to earth

To save humanity


 

Took the wrath of men full speed

The wrath of God as well

Yet stood steadfast hanging there

To deliver us from hell

 

Gaze upon a bloody cross

Shed from innocence 

Not His sin..He had none

But for all our sin

 

Can these eyes behold that Saviour

And not look down with shame

We deserved the wrath He suffered

O praise dear Jesus's name

The cross! The tomb! The tomb is empty!

Blinded eyes now see!!

Never again to diminish that wonder

Jesus died for me!

 

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
