Simply Put the Cross
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


The cross is still the preaching power
That brings all men to Christ
There is nothing else on earth
That ever will suffice

For in death...burial...Resurrection
Lies our blessed hope
We have an eternal living Saviour
That's what men have wrote

Not just ordinary men
Such as you and I
But holy men of God inspired
By His Spirit to draw nigh

And there in that holy place
Wherever God called them too
They recorded word for word
As God revealed them truth

The truth to be revealed in Christ
The written and living Word
Who fulfilled the law and prohphecies
By His testimony assured

That whomsoever believed on Him
Would rise up from the dead
Christ the first fruit of new life
Just as the Lord has said

Simply put...the cross still holds
All power in heaven and earth
Through the shed blood of Jesus Christ
Men can know... "new birth"

Repentance and a new found faith
Is your's if you will come
Call upon the name of the Lord
And come to know the Son

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
