You Came All The Way Lord

You Came All The Way

Well Lord how I praise You
And thank You everyday
For all the trials that You endured
Yet You came all the way
It usually doesn't take to much
For us to turn aside
But You set Your face like a flint
To become sin's Sacrifice

Mocking...scourging...railing
From the highest to the low
You took it all in stride Lord
You loved each and every foe
Nothing would detour You
From the task You had at hand
Even though there were ten thousand Angel's
Ready at Your command

It will be very interesting
When we get to Heaven's shore
And meet the first believer
That entered Heaven's door
Then the last believer
While You hung there on the Cross
Offering him Paradise...that day!
While the other met eternal loss

What blessed assurance of Heaven
Have we who know the Lord
This truth is not a fairy tale
For its founded on the Word
The number one best seller
For it has Heavenly reviews
You came all the way Lord
And brother that's not fake news!

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
