I Have the Perfect Picture
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I have the perfect picture

Of Jesus in my heart

Framed there by the Holy Spirit

It shall never depart

His blood the cleansing power

That washes away my sin

His thorn crowned brow reminder of

His subjection to God's will


The wounds in His hands and feet

The pierce that smote His side

Then to have ... God forsake Him

To hear His heartfelt cry

Compassion had it's finest hour

It saw the Saviour through

When He uttered those blessed words

"Father forgive them...they know not what they do"


Yes I have the perfect picture

It's seated in my soul

I know the Lord as personal Friend

And how He loves me so

He's with me every moment

I treasure that for sure

When troubles come to visit

My Lord is always near


When I shall see Him face to face

To spend eternity

I won't be suprised when I meet Him

For He's lived in me

That picture I've held dearly

For Jesus never changes

He's the One who takes a life

And gently re-arranges!

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
