Hallelujah He Arose

Hallelujah He Arose

Hallelujah He arose!
Triumphant praises sing
There's a glory Hallelujah 
In our offering for that King
O forgiveness's rejoicing
In the song of a soul set free
Unparalleled is the love of God
Throughout all of history

Not just a babe in a manager 
But a Saviour birthed that day
Virgin born Christ my Messiah
Humility in the Highest degree
No wonder hearts are broken
Upon their acknowledgement of sin
For absolute Holiness...praise God!
Dwelleth only in Him

Not one sin!. ..No not one!
Was ever held against His account
Yet He took God's wrath for ours
And bore them at Calvary's Mount
Silently He took it all in
As His life was ebbing away
But still found strength to forgive a thief
Who believed on Him that day

He is our strength Hallelujah!
Amen!...He defeated all of His foes
He showed Himself alive after three days...glory!
Hallelujah He arose!!!
He's just but a prayer away
That's just how close He is!
Are you ready  to welcome Him today
And know Salvation's bliss?!!!

We cannot stop from telling it
Hallelujah Christ arose!
Death has a deeper meaning now
His blood has secured our praise!
My heart pants for fellowship 
With my Lord each day
For there's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus
Who can take our sin away

Take a moment to take it in
Then swiftly to your knees
Give due reverence to that One
Who hears a sinner's pleas
And offers absolute forgiveness
Hallelujah He arose!
For this sinner...me!!!

O I wish that you could see it
That you could really see
What is the worth of living for self
In the light of eternity
Frail as dust...we are!
Fallen sinful men!
Turn your eyes upon the Lord Jesus Christ
Come and know the Great I Am!
Turn your eyes upon the Lord Jesus Christ
Come and know the Great I Am!

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
