O What Creative Power

O what creative power
Has our awesome God
Who formed earth and heaven
By His precious Word

He simply spoke it into being
And being it became
Every living thing exists
Because of Jesus' name

Invisible and visible
All...He made them all
Atoms and molecules
Beckoned to His call

The fowl of the air fish of the sea
Them...He made them too
Everything that creepeth
With God they have to do

He gave the lights in Heaven
To separate Night from Day
Every herb and grass on earth
On which this planet lay

Whales and the cattle
They came from their Maker
They all exist because of God
Heaven and Earth's Creator

And man in all his splendor
Was simply formed by dust
And believing became the salt of the earth
When in Jesus he placed his trust

Yes God our help in ages past
Our hope in years to come
We glorify thy precious name
God...Jesus Christ...the Son!

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
