There's A Highway Of Hope

There's A Highway Of Hope

There's a highway of hope I'm travelling on
It's a narrow path some days
I have a Friend who is guiding me
And He leads me along the way
Though storm clouds gather
and the thunder rolls
I'm not deterred in my plight
Darkness has no hold on me
For I'm walking with the Light

Thank You Lord for Your steadfast hand
I know You are always near
With an everlasting love as such
What have I on earth to fear
Your blessings are from everlasting
And everlasting they shall be
The love of God in Jesus Christ
Has found an everlasting home in me

Are you a weary traveller
Lost hope along the way
There is a Friend called Jesus Christ
Who'd love to be your Stay
His arms are ever ready
To embrace you with His love
Ask Him for companionship
And your hope will come alive!

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
