FOR FOREVER


 


Tried and true trusted One


Friend above all others


He who knows us through and through


Our every care and bother


Never far away from us


Yes, just a prayer away


"Come to me, come here my child"


Hear the Saviour say


 


Lean upon my gentle breast


Find your comfort sure


Let them fall, I know each one


Every fallen tear


With brokenhearted tenderness 


In simple faith and trusting


Stay awhile in my  arms


Find relief in resting


 


For I am with you always


You'll never walk alone


With you every waking hour


Until I bring you home


Looking back in retrospect


These moments you will treasure


When you remember once again


I'm with you for forever!

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
