Lord We Come
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Lord we come with gratitude

And reverential attitude

For with the "fear of God" our wisdom begins

He who learns this young.....he wins!

For God Himself, He is our Stay

He is the Truth, the Life, the Way

In Him there's nothing left to "chance"

For He's God of every circumstance


The sooner we get that "into gear"

Life will be more pleasurable here

We're on a journey that will end

With one of two destinations friend

One is heaven by "new birth"

That we can receive on earth

Through trusting Jesus as our Lord

Read it friend, it's in God's word


The other destination is not that swell

For it leads to that place called "hell"

Again you might have never heard

Read it friend,  it's in God's word

Don't just live life with levity

But give some room for brevity

For yes there is an "outer space"

But God, He too indwells that place


All you see and cannot see

God made it for eternity

One day the questions that we ask for

Will be answered by the Master

That very next breath that you take

May it make your soul awake

To it's final destination's shore

I trust it will be at "heavens" door!

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
