I Take Great Comfort In

I take great comfort in
"In the beginning God"
Here is where I placed my hope
And where my hope has stood
In Him who never changeth
In Him the great I am
Yesterday, today, forever
Behold the risen Lamb

Faith that is alive and well
In Him my Resurrection
I live with the blest assurance of
I'm on the right direction
And Holy Spirit living
Is mine now to enjoy
I can live the abundant life
For He is my great joy

Yes I can take great comfort in
The Living and Written Word
So great salvation in His name
Is Jesus Christ my Lord
Wonderful story of love
Is His love for me
My Creator become my Saviour
Praise God for Calvary!

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
