Praise God For The Assurance

Praise God for the assurance
Of when a loved one's gone
We'll be meeting in the bye and bye
It gives our heart a song
Sure there's disappointment
For the ending of their days
But being mindful of the future
Gives cause for grateful praise

Thank You Lord for evidence
That they came to know the Son
It's helps in the healing process
So we may continue on
In Your great grace and mercy
As the Father of all love
For revelation to us here
We'll meet again above

In our shock and numbness
Lord...You are ever near
So thankful for the closeness when
We come to You in prayer
And when those tears of sorrow
Begin their downward descent
They're mingled there with tears of joy
For we know. .where he went!

Amen for that assurance Lord
Praises in Your direction
We know You as the Way...Truth...and Life
And Hallelujah!... our Resurrection!
Praise You for the grace in grief
For Your love encompasses me
So thankful that a loved one knew
The Man of Calvary!

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
