What A Day Resurrection Was

What A Day Resurrection Was

What a day Resurrection was
Jesus's words were verified
Destroy this temple and in three days I'll raise it
Satan's work was nullified
Death now was but a shadow
To those who would trust in Him
Love found a way through Calvary
To deal with the debt of our sin

His followers found new fervor 
To share that blessed Word
For they had lived with the One who died
Who was now the risen Lord
Hallelujah what a Saviour
I'm sure was their heart's new reasonation
For there!...there!...right in their midst
Was the author of Salvation!

What a Lord to follow!
What a God to serve!
Giving men a blessed hope
Who've trusted in the Lord
For He who called forth Lazarus
Shall one day call forth you
Put your faith in Christ today
And you'll know Resurrection too!

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
