That Morning
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


That morning the sun could hardly wait to shine

Jesus stepped forth and the created shone on the face of its Creator

It was ablaze with glory as it lighted the whole world in its splendour

Here was He who said , “Let there be Light”.

Being the Light of the world Himself

Unrecognized by many as to who He was but

Recognized by all creation as it groaneth and travaileth until His coming day

His mission accomplished, the Father’s will was done

The message of Hope could now be proclaimed boldly

In that He was raised from the dead

In Him was life and this life was the light of men

Destroy this temple He said and in three days I will raise it

And raise it He did, He did indeed

His humbleness as Victor proved  His title

Lord of Lords and King of Kings

His role as Prophet and Priest was attested to as well

He fulfilled what He had spoken and is as at the

Father’s right hand ever interceding for us

Hallelujah,  what a Saviour

No boasting was necessary

His Risen Life said it all

He is Risen.  He is Risen indeed!

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
