I've a Steadfast Hope
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


I've a steadfast hope in Jesus Christ
There is no wavering
For up from the grave my Saviour rose
Great cause to praise and sing
He supped and ate some bread and fish
To His followers...He was real
Here was Christ Himself again
Enjoying a fellowship meal

The love of Christ for us is sure
He loves those who follow Him
And gently leads us in His service
And gives us victory over sin
Life with Him...what a blessing
What a Friend in Him I've found
My steadfast hope is in Lord Jesus
My destination....Glorybound!

Heaven lives inside this sinner
Saved by grace...I know I am
Following now that Good Shepherd
Who once as well was Christ the Lamb
Glory glory hallelujah
Can Satan steal this joy?...Nope!
For I know in whom I believed
The One who gives a Steadfast Hope!

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
