Treasure Island

Gary James Smith

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

Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

The accumulation of our sin

Was a weighty cross to bare

Our sins of past, present, and future

Hung Lord Jesus there

But mighty were those arms of love

Stretched out for you and me

Worthy were those feet that walked

And prayed in Gethsemane

From His side poured out water and blood

Not one bone was broken

Fulfilled prophecy to the letter

Thus our God had spoken

Here the Saviour of the world

Obedient to His Father's will

Gave up the ghost and died our death

So He could Deliver still

Deliver still He does our Lord

Sinners He saves by grace

Whomsoever shall call upon Christ's name

Will see Him face to face

He is the Resurrection and the Life

He's conqueror over the grave

Tell the world this story brother

Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
