Praise God For Jesus Christ

Praise God For Jesus Christ

Praise God for Jesus Christ
I love that precious name
Who tasted death for every man
That we might live again
His offer it still stands
It can never be diminished
For He brought death to death itself
In His utterance...'It is finished!"

When God in fashion humbled Himself
And became a lowly man
He identified with His Creation
And initiated His plan
The miraculous virgin birth
"One" born without one sin
Who would become obedient unto death
With not one found in Him

Love was never displayed as such
In any man's human dealings
From the forgiveness's for sin
To the heartfelt joy of healings
He who came unto His own
But His own received Him not
Transformed all who believed in Him
Whom with His blood He bought

That name is lifted high
For God has deemed it so
One day every tongue shall confess it's worth
The Bible tells me so
When every knee shall bow
And confess that Christ is Lord
His humility shall be owned
And the worthiness of the Word

Praise God for Jesus Christ
I love that precious name
Who tasted death for every man
That we might live again
His offer it still stands
It can never be diminished
For He brought death to death itself
When He uttered "It is finished!"

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
