As We Turn The Key

As We Turn The Key

As we turn the key on yesterday
And leave that life behind
Still it tries to force itself
To steal away our mind
But we're not subjected to the past
We have our new beginnings
And every soul that knows the Lord
Is on the side of winnings

For Christ can heal the broken hearted
His gives more grace in grief
And stills the soul with "peace be still"
I am your sure Relief!
And bonded such with Him we are
Who sticketh closer than any brother
And satisfaction for our lament
Could never be found in another

So here I am again O Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
But knowing You my steadfast Hope
In the garment of faith I wear
And clothed in Your fine Righeousness
Enjoying forgiveness for my sin
I can wait upon You Lord
Until I'm equipped to live again!

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
