I've Caught A Glimpse

I've Caught A Glimpse 


 I've caught a glimpse of eternity

 And O what a bliss it is 

Sin had blinded me to it's worth 

And my own unworthiness 

But praise God for that glorious Light

 That leads the wanderer home

 And rescues him from his darkness night

 To give him a so great Salvation


 Christ was lifted up on that Cross 

To draw all men unto Him 

His righteousness was undeniable 

Who took my place for sin

Though hardly recognized by men 

To God... He was His. . Just Son 

My sins...everyone of them...were placed upon Him 

They were laid on that Crucified One 


Will you not catch a glimpse of eternity 

Look to the Lamb and live 

His shed blood has sin cleansing power

That only Christ can give 

There's the reality of His Resurrection

For the Sacrifice that He has made 

Your eternity can be fully realized

 Because Lord Jesus saves! 


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
