A Rip Roaring Salvation

I have a rip roaring Salvation
That I'm enjoying to the max
Christ has forgiven all my sin
With payment on His back
There the lashes repeatedly thrust
Upon His human flesh
Caused His blood to be poured out
He died for me no less

Then His beard was plucked as well
His face was spit upon
Scorned and scoffed at was my Saviour
Creator...God the Son
Yet He withstood this awful onslaught
Without retaliation
And asked the Father to forgive
He seeked His authorization

With the nails in His hands His feet
He hung between two thieves
And still there offered peace and pardon
And praise God one believed
As the Lamb of God prepared
As the offering for our sin
We look forward to that day
When He shall return again

Then His silence will be broken
Broken as never before
Coming back with His saints from glory
With a triumphant roar
And King of Kings and Lord of Lords
His majesty we'll see
And sin's Deliverer will have His Day
What a Day...glorious Day that will be!

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
