Love Is Like A Candle

Love Is Like A Candle

Love is like a candle
Glowing in the night
Shining forth a pathway
To lead us by its light
We find a warmth within it
A special drawing power
A magnetizing presence
Soothing us each hour

Love has no deficiencies
Its pure as pure can be
Of all the traits found within man
Love has supremacy
But our love is insufficient
To love the best we can
We must be filled with the love of God
To love our fellow men

And so the Light of the world is love
The love of God in Christ
Who so loved this very world
He became sins sacrifice
And offered up love's finest example
His utmost definition of love
If a man lay down his life for another
He has the acceptance of God

Hallelujah what a Saviour !

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
