How Far Are You Away From God

How Far Are You Away From God


 How far are you away from God 

What's the distance in your mind

 To what extent have you thought about Him 

Have you given it any time 

We can put up some barriers

 That we think are of our own

 But Satan wants to trap you 

To rob you of Heaven's home


 So give a thought about Him 

He's but a prayer away 

Let down all of your defences

 He wants to be your Stay

 The One who gave you what you breathe

 Yes the very breath of life

 How far are you away from God 

Come close to Him tonight 


O such a loving Father

 Who knows of our deepest need

 To have a relationship with Jesus Christ 

Who is a true Friend indeed

 And to have our sins forgiven

 Such a freedom in our soul

 How far are you away from God

 Come today and be made whole!  


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
