Other Poems by Gary James Smith


My sins were weighty companions
They brought me to despair
The wrecked sure havoc on my soul
They followed me everywhere
I had no labeling word
To call sin what it was
Until I read the Bible
And saw its deadly curse

My transgressions piled up
They stuck together like glue
Each one took its place in line
To add to my burdens too
When I acknowledged the truth of it
That I was a sinner from birth
And that my nature was tainted as such
I saw my Lord's true worth

My Saviour became my Companion
No other Saviour as He
To love me still in spite of my sin
To die there at Calvary
When I saw repentance's feeedom
Forgiveness through the blood of the Lamb
My...my...my I thought to myself
I'm trusting in the Great I Am!!!!

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
