Christmas Time - Again
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Again it's Christmas time's debut
The season's front and center
Buying the gifts for those we love
Cherished things to remember

That special music in the air
That draws us to consider
What songs are these we sing about
Of Him who came to live here

A virgin born Son of God
How can that really be
Coming to earth with a lowly birth
Coming for you and for me

O the ...deception of sin
That takes this matter lightly
Tries to dethrone our Deity
Who is the God Almighty

Our very nature denies the fact
That God was in the Son
Reconciling the world to Himself
The Father, the Spirit, the Son

Blind we are until we see
The Light that is in the Son
Revealed to us by the Holy Spirit
From the Word of revelation

That Word that quickens every heart
Who sincerely seeks to know
And offers a "so great Salvation"
That washes white as snow

Redeemed by the "blood of the Lamb"
May hungry hearts now know it
And live anew " born again"
With an eagerness to show it

Grant dear Lord "this Christmas time"
Souls who are lost and undone
May they come to know the Lord Jesus
And be saved " by the crucified One"

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
