What Love! What Wonderous Love

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


For the joy that was set before Him

He endured the cross

He saw His Victory over sin

For those who were lost

Wounded for our transgressions

Bruised for our iniquities

The crown of thorns upon Him

His prayer in Gethsemane

Still steadfast He remained

Set His face like a flint

Nothing could deteour His plan

Though satan tried his stint

His love for sinners drove Him

All the way to Calvary

From the cross still emits the sound

I gave my life for thee

My heart now, has a song

That it never had before

I can sing about His Grace

For He opened heaven's Door

There no sin shall enter

For back on yonder cross

He placed my death upon Himself

He suffered all the cost

What love! What wondrous love.

That vile ones such as we

Should gain Eternity

What love! What wondrous love

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
