Eternal Jesus

Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Eternal Jesus. ....Lord of all

It's at your feet I humbly fall

And call upon Thy blessed name

The One who changes and redeems

All glory be to You my God

That even when condemned I stood

You took my sins and circumstance 

And gave to me a second chance


You birthed "new life" within my soul

Your Spirit cleansed and made me whole

Washed clean by Thy precious Word

Through Thine own... shed drops of blood

Mercy...grace...abundant free!

Sinless, sacrificial... Lamb for me

For on that cross at Calvary

You paid my sin's full penalty


Eternal Jesus...God the Son

You proved your worth to everyone

In that God raised You from the dead

You've now become our "living Head"

Alive in You by Your Spirit

There's nothing else that comes near it

Reconciled to God in Heaven

All past sins have been forgiven!


Eternal Jesus....by Thy Spirit

Touch the hearts of thosr who hear it

Thy blest "Word of Life" to man

That they must be "born again"

Infuse us with Thy "holy power"

To not hold back this "timely hour"

But preaching the Word with intensity 

Making "full proof" of our ministry!

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
