The bible is a book of wonders
No wonder...its author is God
And yes you can believe all of it
Right up to the very last Word
From Genisis to Revelation
Totalling sixty six books in all
Manual for maintaining physical life
And spiritual life as well

An old testament and a new testament 
To bring the book to completion
The beginnings of the work of God
And His work found in Salvation
And for the labelling of sin
The result of man's first transgression
Death because of his disobedience to God
And the initiation of Redemption

Have you discovered the treasure there
That's found within its pages
Holy men led by the Spirit God
Those revered and highly esteemed sages
Who lived by faith a victorious life
Looking forward to the Son
Find yourself a bible today
A relaxing chair...and read some!

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
