What Glory of the Gospel
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith

What glory of the gospel 

What power in Jesus name

Who brings Resurrection and New Life

To those who are "born again"

Who takes our sin and gives it

A send off "out the door"

To never yield it's power again

As it had before


A Spirit that indwells us

To be with us forever

A seal within the depths of our soul

Revealing we're a true believer 

A Comforter that leads us

Leads us on our way

Led by the Spirit of the Lord

We have a blessed day


And prayer ignites a passion

To do the will of God

To have a burden for the lost

A love for His blest Word

Resting in a solitude

A rest of heavenly peace

That takes the anxious moments

And bids them all to cease


That if and when it questions "why"

It's faith is not diminished

But leaves the results with the Lord

Until this life is finished

Then on that grand finale day

When begins our eternity

What glory of the gospel 

When Lord Jesus we shall see!

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
