I've Booked Ahead

I've booked ahead for my journey
For the land that is fairer than day
For I've put my trust in the Lord Jesus Christ
Who is the life...is the truth...is the way
Who is the life...is the truth...is the way
And blest has been that decision
For my soul has been given a song
For when the heart is forgiven for sin
Sure merriment comes along
Sure merriment comes along

And now I'm happy in Jesus
Rejoicing a big part of my day
For the wonderful grace He has given to me
Now leads me with purposeful praise
Now leads me with purposeful praise
And thank You for a Salvation Lord
That leads from the old rugged cross
To an empty tomb bearing just linen
Where death has been rendered a loss
Where death has been rendered a loss

O glory Hallelujah
For the Lamb who for sinners was slain
If I do not praise Him the rocks shall cry out
All praises be to that name
All praises be to that name
Have you made your reservations
Are you sure you are glorybound
Then today!...Today'!...While it's yet called today
Seek the Lord while He may yet be found
Seek the Lord while He may yet be found!

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
