Words Can Never

Words Can Never

Words can never fully explain
The awesomeness of God
It is when His Spirit lives within
That He can be understood
For by His Word this world exists
He spoke and it became
And by His Word it still exists
All praise to Jesus name

O what power in that name
Every grave beholden
Each one on earth to give account
For the life unfolding
And not a moment but goes by
But that our God is watching
Not one thing hidden from His sight
Though men not think it often

You are but a speck of dust
Tread this earth so lightly
One day you'll meet your Maker friend
Who is our God Almighty
So circumspectly bide your time
Your judgment Day is coming
Death collects it's earthen prey

But rise.. awake to righteousness
In Christ a Sure foundation
For His blood "Once" shed for sin
Still offers you Salvation
Do not neglect this mindful charge
But today while still you're living
Offer up your praise to Him
With a heart full of thanksgiving!

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
