The Resurrected Saviour Reigns - Poem by Gary James Smith


The resurrected Saviour reigns
With regal, royalty
Clothed in His righteousness alone
We find our purity.
Not one work of ours will merit
In Him, any favour
For we all are, unclean vessels
Until we meet the Saviour.

Then we see! At last we see!
What sinners that we were
And how we needed His shed blood
To make us, in Him pure.
The Father now sees us in Him
We're under no condemnation
With thankful hearts we offer praise
For this so great salvation!

Hallelujah, I've been saved
I have been redeemed
So simple it now seems to me
His blood's what makes me clean
He died the just for the unjust
How worthy is that Lamb
When I repented of my sin
I met the Great I AM!

O tell that story brother
Tell it sister too
Nothing to be ashamed of this
That Saviour died for you.
All the world, it needs it
None other name under Heaven is given
But in that name of Jesus Christ
Where trusting is really living.

    'where trusting is really living' exactly my faith!
    I don't believe in all this 10 stuff but still you get one from me.
    if you have time you might like to read my poem
    You are like a well.
    thanks for a good start to a cold week in Holland.

    Only in poetry will I enjoy a poem about Jesus, when my religion doesn't believe in him. A good poem, though it is quite sad that someone must die to purify others. It's kind of like the news story I just watched about a boy who died saving his best friend. The best friend lived. I'll enjoy reading your future poems. (Report) Reply
