Treasure Island

Gary James Smith

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

Jesus Had a Lot on His Plate

Jesus Had a Lot on His Plate

Jesus had a lot on His plate

On His way to Calvary's Cross

Three years with His disciples

Had they counted all the cost

Peter would deny Him,

Judas would betray

Before Pilate, Herod, and the others

He stood fast in His Stay

He knew what lay before Him

The mocking crowd and shame

The crown of thorns upon His head

The blaspheming of His name

His robe was taken from Him

Not His robe of Righteousness

Then before the world, Behold Him!

The Son of God no less!

His wrath He could have poured out

And leveled man therein

But No! He held back Judgment's Hour

Pouring out Himself for sin

Naught of sin which He had done

None could convict Him so

But for the sins, of this whole world

Because He loved us so

But in our Lord God Almighty

Law and Grace did meet

Making a way for you and I

To come to the Mercy Seat

For the joy that was set before Him

He endured that rugged cross

And with eyes that were full of compassion

He looked out upon the lost

How easily we are slighted

Over such a simple offence

But Jesus Christ, He endured

What endearing benevolence

So He bids us likewise

Take up your cross and follow Me

Give the world a taste of the Son

In tasting they shall be free!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
