Lord When It Comes Down To It

Lord When It Comes Down To it

Lord when it comes down to it
You came down for me
And took the full portion for all  of my pain
That I might be set free
You unraveled all of my questions
And made me willing to lean
On the precious blood of Jesus Christ
Which can wash a sinner clean

Your peace invaded my innermost being
And made me fully recognize
The peace that passeth all understanding
Was mine to realize
Your presence in me became exhilarating 
Pure joy had taken place
For my redemption was in Jesus Christ
Who took this sinner's place

How outstanding was my standing
A new creature now in Jesus Christ
With the full fledged authority from my God
That He'd paid my ransom price
Jesus's love revealed in God's Word 
Praise God the Holy Spirit sealed it
With a stamp of approval upon my heart
That Jesus Christ had healed it...

O the power in God's Word
Actually when it comes down to it
To find out that Jesus Christ came down...
For my sin and brought me through it
Hallelujah He broke the barrier of death
Praise God for that benchmark
None else could ever match that target
For He alone has the stretch marks!

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
