Faith The Facts

Faith the facts and get prayed up
God is in control
He's never late or in a hurry
Learn to trust Him so
We have the Spirit as our Comforter
In Him we have our peace
The joy of the Lord is our strength
We've everything to meet our needs

O praise You heavenly Father
May we yearn to trust You so
And take a vacation from ourselves
And let the Spirit take control
What a blessing to know the Word
Where truth is finalized
And rest upon its precious promises
Through all the days of our lives

And let the flesh only momentarily
Try to upsurp our path
But then let us swiftly to that Saviour
Who has gained for us all that we have
For greater is He that's within us
Then He that is in the world
Rather to be safe in the arms of Jesus
Than to experience God's wrath unfurled

Praise God I faithed the facts
I was a sinner lost and undone
I believed what the Word said about my state
And I received Jesus Christ God's Son
My eternity to me is now personal
For I know in whom I believed
My faith has found it's resting place
My penalty from sin's been relieved!

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
