Comfort In Our Affliction 

Comfort in our affliction
Praise God for the truth of it
For we can rest in a Saviour
Who giveth such benefits
The Holy Spirit our Comforter
Praise God that He has come
To help us in our daily walk
To enjoy our so great Salvation

Though trials and testings may come our way
Along with a load of suffering
We have one Who can bestow us grace
To turn  our grief into rejoicing
Inner peace and joy...hallelujah!
What a Saviour is mine
I  no longer have fear of death
For He's with me all the time!

Comfort in our affliction
Hallelujah...praise the Lord!
Backed up by the full authority of
The precious Word of God
I've searched the scriptures and have found Him
I know in Whom I have believed
There's not a friend like Jesus Christ
Repent and this Saviour receive!

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
