The Object Of My Faith

The Object Of My Faith

The object of my faith is worthy
How worthy is the Lamb
The Author and Finisher  is my Lord
Who said before Abraham was I am
And as He is the Word as well
And like us as flesh He became
I can totally rest upon His promises
All praise be unto His name

I now live in Resurrection power
Because Lord Jesus lives in me
His Holy Spirit as my companion 
Comforting me faithfully 
Supported by His unfailing Word
The truth shall ever stand
I in my Lord and He in me
As we walk together hand in hand

What mighty faith of Jesus Christ
That name above all names
Immanuel our God with us
Let every tongue proclaim 
Is there some sorrow in the house
He's come to bring us joy
For up from the grave He arose
He's ours now to enjoy!

Living in the temporal though eternal
For life everlasting is mine
Who could ever doubt that my Hallelujah"s
Are the resultt of something divine
Praise God I met the Master
Who poured out such love for me
The object of my faith...the Lord Jesus Christ
And praise God faith is the Victory!

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
