The Awakening

The Awakening

The awakening of a soul
To a Light it never knew
To a love so incomprehensible
To a Saviour in full view
Disfigured and abandoned
Twas love that held Him fast
To the cruel cross of Calvary
For sin present, and future, and past

The Word become flesh Hallelujah
My God for sin did atone
And though our sin placed Him there
He never left us alone
For by His Word conviction
Comes to the erring one
Upon repentance and faith in Him
We come to know the Son

He the Light of the world
Bids darkness to dispel
And gives to us an eternal hope
Delivering us from Hell
I see I finally see
There's Life in the Crucified One
My faith has found it's resting place
In Jesus God's dear 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
