Sometimes I Soar

Sometimes I Soar

Sometimes I soar on eagle's wings
When travelling with my Father
Uplifted by my faith in Him
He takes me so much farther
I can hardly take it in
He loves me as a son
And is strong on my behalf
When I've thought..."I'm done!"

And when I'm resting on that thought
My God....He loves me so
Life always takes a turn for the better
It's true....it's true I know!
To have a Father so consistent
Of always seeking my good
I am thrilled beyond all measure
That I'm living in..."His Hood!"

And that I am a glad recipient
Of His amazing grace
And praise my heavenly Father such
That Christ has taken my place
And put me in the heavenlies soaring
I sing because I'm free
And how could I do but any other
For He watches over me!

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
