God Made The World

God That Made The World

God who made the world
And all the things therein
Seeing that He is Lord of Heaven
And the Lord of earth amen!
Dwells not in temples made by hands
But in us by "new birth"
Has given high value to each life
That man might see their worth

In Him we live and move
And have our very being
He giveth to men his boundaries
Our life, our breath, all things
We are nations of one blood
We have an appointed time
When we will be judged by His Word
So repentance is in line

The Godhead is not like gold or silver
Or for that matter even stone
Graven by art and man's devices
The Godhead is God alone
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Creator... Redeemer... Friend
Happy are you if you feel after Him
His love will never end

He has appointed a day
In the which He will judge the world
In righteousness by Jesus Christ
Whom against earth's wrath is hurled
He's commanded all men to repent
With power and authority He gives
Proven evidence above all else
Because Lord Jesus lives!

If this God to you is unknown
Then diligently seek Him my friend
Happy to have a better future
Than to have a bitter end
May you feel after Him and find Him
For He is close at hand
A prayer away for that matter
Come enjoy so great Salvation!

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
