I Draw from the Blood
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I draw from the blood that cleansing power

That washes all...of my sin away

I now forgive as I was firgiven

Through Jesus Christ...the Life, the Truth, the Way

He placed me in...the loving arms of Father

Now to know ...what peace of His as mine

To live anew...a life as a saved sinner

I thank you Lord..for such a love divine!


O Calvary's cross..you made my life worth living

I see, I see, the world as You do Lord

Every soul...they need to know the Saviour

Trust in Him..Who is the living Word

To magnify..that precious name of Jesus

My passion now..to live for Him is gain

To see the cross, in all it's splendor...glory!

So glad I trusted..in Lord Jesus name!


A dying world is living with such lostness

Blinded eyes because they cannot see

Satan deceiving gathering for his kingdom

Wounded hearts who know not Calvary

Take that Word..and share the gospel story

Jesus saves! And Jesus satisfies!

Give the world the opportunity brother

It was for them..our Lord was crucified!

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
