The Book the Blood

The book the blood our blessed hope
Jesus Christ crucified
Our Salvation wrapped up in Him
May God be glorified
What extension of His love for us
In whom the Lord has raised
Magnify that precious name
May Jesus Christ be praised

May Jesus Christ be praised
That One Who died for sin
And took our debt upon Himself
That we might enter in
And full Redemption through the blood
Of the Lamb for sinner's slain
Forgiveness flows now deep within
All praise be to that name

All praise be to that name
That loved this world so much
He came down in flesh Himself
To give the Master's touch
And every heart that welcomes Him
The Great Physician cures
Such an everlasting love
Forever it endures

Forever it endures my friend
The Spirit seals it so
Upon each repentant heart
That's been washed white as snow
And joy comes in the morning
And the darkness flees away
The book the blood our blessed hope
He's with us now always

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
