God Gave His Eternal Word

God Gave His Eternal Word

God gave His eternal Word
To express His eternity
What some of us measure as real life
Is a thought of futility
Here today gone tomorrow 
And never to rise again
Is what most of them think dearly of
Such is the folly of men

Eat...drink and be merry
Their philosophy in gear
Off they go to the pleasures of sin
Whose season will soon disappear
With God constantly on the sidelines
He's watching it over all
Waiting for that realization
When they get their wake up call

Some will catch the truth of it
When their pleasures lose their lust
The emptiness of broken promises
In the one's in whom they put their trust
Then the yearning for relief
O where..O where will I turn
Then a cry out to God above
Whose love they initially spurned

Praise You heavenly Father
Your love abounds in grace
Swift to forgive each erring one
Who seeks the Master's face
And praise You for an eternity
With Whom we can spend our days
In the presence of a living God
Who loves to change men's ways!

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
