When I Felt Calvary

When I Felt Calvary 


 When I felt Calvary

 And the warmth of Jesus love 

I knew that soul cleansing power

 Yes the power of the blood 

On the Cross it was started

 Until "it is finished" was the cry 

When I felt Calvary 

My sins were washed away


 My Saviour loved me 

I found it out in the Word

 How lost that I was 

I never before had ever heard

 That my Salvation 

Was not dependent on what I'd done

 But faith was received  

When I trusted in the Son  


Now joy unspeakable 

And full of glory

 I can sing God's praises

 And tell the story 

Before I was lost 

And lost hopelessly 

But my life was changed

 When I felt Calvary  


Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
