God Sustains

God sustains in time of trial
And gives us grace and love
And ministers to hurting hearts
Because our God is good
And... whatever befalls us
He knows each circumstance
And carry's the weight of our sorrows
The Man of sorrows understands

His love infused with penetrating power
Comforts by His Spirit given
And mends each brokenhearted one
Encouraging to keep on living
And leave those things with question marks
In the hands of almighty God
And live with grace and love again
One day they'll be understood

Praise God for His sustaining grace
T'is a marvelous transformation
When we're surrounded by His love
Surrendering to each situation
Knowing whatever His will for us
He'll sustain us by His grace
With love poured out from Calvary
Ministering in trials that we face

I have a Friend named Jesus Christ
Who walks with me each day
And gives me joy in living
Who is my constant Stay
Many times I've been a recipient
Of my God's amazing grace
Oftimes pondering of that wonderful day
When I shall see Him face to face!

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
