When Creation's Groaning

When Creation's Groaning

When creation's groaning turns to song
Imagine all that praise
The stars, the trees, the rocks sing out
With the redeemed of every age
Love emits the greatest voice
To give praises to the Lamb
Both Heaven and earth in celebration
Just fathom that if you can

No wonder God has made eternity
Else we could never take it in
We're so used to living in the temporal
So many limitations because of sin
And holy, holy, holy
Sin's been dealt with,  praise the Lord
Standing there singing with glorified bodies
Our Hallelujah's and praise the Lord's

I've been transfixed in adoration
Carried to heights by songs on earth
Sung by believers in the Lord Jesus Christ
Who've sang His praises for all their worth
And while tears have begun their traveling 
From down my face unto the floor
Those songs of praise now generating worship
Unto that Saviour whom I adore

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
