Treasure Island

Gary James Smith

(Sept.22,1946 / Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario)

For the Son of Man is Come

For the Son of Man is Come

For the Son of Man is come
To seek and to save the lost
He still performed this duty
While dying on Calvary's cross

Both thieves had opportunity
To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
One remained a steadfast scoffer
The other entered Paradise

His Salvation was most blessed
To thousands of those who heard
The power of the Son of God
Was manifested by His Word
As nature obeyed its Master
When He spoke they well took heed
The wind and the water became still
The disciples more fully believed

We have a wonderful Saviour
Can He deliver? Rightfully so!
He lives in us by His Spirit
Our Guide unto heaven we know
Forgiveness is flowing within us
Forgiven, we can now forgive
Our sins have been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb
We live now, we live now, we Live!

Resurrection power has raised us
New creatures in Christ now are we
Because He lives, we shall live also
Praise God for eternity
Fear of death has departed
Hell no longer has hold
What message we have to tell to the world
A greater story has never been told!

So Lord I'm thanking You again
Thanks for the So Great Salvation
Thank You for saving my soul from sin
For breaking the yoke of damnation
They could not keep You in that tomb
Yes, the stone, You had rolled away
You probably spoke, unto it 'Move! '
And the rock You made obeyed!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
