Incomprehensible Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Incomprehensible love
Encompasses us with care
And so often we dismiss the thought
That love is really there
Yet by God's Holy Spirit
He seeks to lead us home
And bring to us the realization
How far off we've roamed

Away from God and desolate
Such is sin's isolation
Separated from the hope
That can change our situation
But then God brings the circumstance
That gives us clearer vision
How far away we are from Him
And warrants a decision

A Christian friend... a private prayer
A signature of faith
The sweetly drawing by the Spirit
We hear the Lord's... "thus saith"
And hope expands it's horizons
Our spirit is renewed
There's a Salvation in Lord Jesus
That before we never knew

Now a hungry heart is savouring
As it never had before
Truth found in the Word of God
That Jesus is the Door
So that hope opened by faith
Let's grace employ it's power
And whomsoever believes in Christ
Is saved that very hour!

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
