The Cross Is Sufficient

The Cross is Sufficient

The cross is sufficient

For all of my needs

Christ and Christ alone for me

It is settled, they are gone

My sins, they are all gone

Because of His shed blood on Calvary

The law it proved me guilty

My school master to Christ

It showed me of the folly of my sin

I was lost in unbelief

Could not find a sure relief

Until I put my faith and trust in Him

Then His Spirit filled my soul

I'm forgiven that I knew

Now, a child of God, thank You Lord

Just by simple faith and trusting

In His arms I now am resting

What a blessing to believe upon HIs Word

He arose O Hallelujah!

In Him is life eternal

Death no longer has dominion over us

Our victory is in Jesus

What He's done our God is pleased with

He's conquered sin, He's conquered death, and hell!

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
