Testimonies Are Treasures

Testimonies Are Treasures

Testimonies are great treasures
For they tell of forgiveness tales
How lives have been changed miraculously
After following many rabbit trails
And God getting all the glory
For the great things He hath done
Drawing lost men unto Himself
They then finding Christ Jesus as Son

I love the transformation
Of lives that have been rearranged
How sadness is turned into gladness 
Just to see how much they've changed
Then the praises freely flowing
Now from lips that once used curse
A new respect for the Word of God
Citing even chapter and verse

Those tales of testimonies 
They bring the truth on home
That though we may feel sad at times
That we are never alone
There's a God who walks beside us
Every footstep of our way
Excitingly with an expectant heart
That we'll turn to Him some day

Don't remain a stranger
And stand outside the fold
There's a warmth in knowing Jesus
He's the greatest story told
His story purely non fiction
Now that's an important fact
Find out how He changed men's lives forever
Check out the Book of Acts

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
