His Story Is Bigger

His Story Is Bigger

His story is bigger than our story
It's worth the reading wouldn't you think
I mean the Creator of the world Himself 
Life captured on paper in ink
The author and faith's finisher
Hallelujah for the Lamb
The Word become flesh to dwell amongst us
Thou worthy...all worthy...I Am!

You walked amongst Your own Creation
With the personification of humbleness
Loving...forgiving...in servanthood
Your sole main reason to bless
Yet many turned their backs away
At the utterance of Your words
For when You said You could forgive sins
To them that was most absurd

They couldn't believe that very God
Was the God that who You were
Even though in front of their eyes
Miracles did occur
When you raised Lazarus from the dead
Many believed and trusted in You
They saw a Resurrection back to life 
The power of God shone through

Lord in the power of Your Word
Are the thoughts and intents of the heart
Proving we're sinners beyond all doubt
O Lord how great Thou art
With the desire to change our lives
By bringing conviction of our sin
Then turning our hearts towards the Lord Jesus Christ
That we may invite Him in!

The Word is a light to our feet
And a lamp to our path always
As we walk in this world of darkness
Lord You will show us the way
Praise God that Your Word is our Helper
Our comfort in times of duress
The Book You have written...simply amazing!
For You've authored the Best of the best!

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
