He's Gone To Prepare
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


He's gone to prepare a place for me
Of that I'm doubly sure
He left His Spirit here with me
And He always keeps His Word
I'm in the Everlasting arms
Of an Everloving God
I'll be transported there by faith
When my feet leave this world's sod

Up, up, up and away
To meet Him in the air
Never to have old sin again
To lead me to despair
But clothed now in His Righteousness
Garments made clean by blood
By the washing and cleansing of His Word
I'm prepared to meet my God

My God and I and multitudes of saints
Have gathered round the Throne
And sing our glory hallelujah's song
Unto that blessed Son
And every knee will bow confessing
Jesus Christ is Lord
And all the court of Heaven witnessing
It's as sure as His blest Word

So glory hallelujah brother
Let praise begin it's song
We have a home prepared in Heaven
And it won't be very long
Before we see the One who loved us
So much He gave His life
That Everloving Lamb of God
Our Saviour Jesus Christ

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
