Heard Some Wonderful News

Heard some wonderful news today
A friend of old just got saved
We used to drive His mom to service
She's since passed on but will be blessed
To know He came to know the Lord
And God again has honored His Word
Her steadfast prayers for his soul's condition
Praise God had finally come to fruition

I joy and rejoice in that as well
Another lost soul saved from Hell
Now God accomplishing by His Spirit
The work of Salvation.. now sinner hear it
There's grace and mercy abundant free
What's holding you back...seek it for thee
You could be someone's answer to prayer
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there

May there still come wonderful news
About one's absent from church pews
But in our heart's they will always remain
Our prayer they become..."born again"!
And know God's blessing in their life
A sure relief from present strife
And to enjoy their God as ABBA Father
This is my prayer O heavenly Father

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
