Take A Good Look

Take a good look at Jesus Christ
Give Him more than a glance
He can arrange your future swift
Even by death perchance
What a blessed consolation
To know you're heaven bound
And live in the glorious light of the gospel
What better for treasure is found

A soul at rest and satisfied
Ready to meet its Maker
Sin's forgiven exalting Christ
Who is sin's true Forgiver
The fear of death has lost it's grip
On each believing one
And Resurrection power is ours
Our Father, our Spirit, our Son

That look of faith unto the Lamb
The Lamb for sinner's slain
Assures us of eternal hope
When we are born again
And children of God we become
When trusting in the Lord
And our life as eternal as
Our Saviour's precious Word

Don't just trust that it will be old age
To bring you to your end
You never know what might be ahead
When your coming around a bend
Or sickness calls and says "come home"!
We know it's a reality
Take a good look at Jesus Christ
And seeing you will see!

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
