It Is Written!

It was written, It is finished!
Before the world began;
God already had in heaven,
Salvation fully planned!

Knowing man would surely fall,
When left unto his own;
God devised the plan for them,
Through His Son alone!

Not one jot or title can change!
Thus saith the Lord!
For creation came into being,
By His Holy Word!

As He awaits that coming day,
That none knoweth, save the Son;
All the world will then behold,
That bright and Holy One!

Nail print hands, blood pierced side,
Wounds that crown thorns brought;
Hail Redeemer, blessed Son,
Every knee shall drop!

Hail Redeemer, blessed Son,
This is creations best;
Jesus Christ the Lord of glory,
Let every tongue confess!

High and lowly, rich and poor,
Bond and free alike;
Nations, kingdoms, princes, paupers,
Seek that Lord of Light!

Judgment hastening, grace imploring,
Repent be saved tonight;
Hell enlarging, eternal torment,
Let that, not be your fright!

Awake oh soul and call upon,
That blessed name of Christ;
Darkness falling, Jesus calling,
Trust in Him, what price!

Rest assured, that joy and peace,
Will flood your heart with praise;
When Jesus comes to take us home,
Not one believer stays!

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
