From Our Father's Hand

From Our Father's Hand
From our Father's Hand
Came a trial and testing
A shocked surprise was placed upon our plate
But once again His grace was superintending
Sufficient for the day we found His grace not late
But God was there and peace came like a river
A Comforting Spirit to minister to our need
In that moment we knew that Resurrection's power
Would reign Supreme and that once again we'd meet

And even death could not rob us of that glory
To be revealed in the land of the sweet by and by
Where with the saints and loved one's we shall gather
To that grand meeting place in the sky
Hallelujah for a risen Saviour 
Who death sought with vengance
to rob Him of His power
But He has proven Himself strong on our behalf
His truth shall reign and be revealed in Judgement's Hour

I love Thy Word its truth is everlasting
And shall endure when man's word fades away
For You O Lord are faith's Author and faith's Finisher
There's none besides Thee O Lord who art so Great
My Salvation is sanctified and settled
I have believed and faith's brought victory
Praise God I know that my Redeemer liveth
And one day old death not even a memory!

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
