Only Thou Art Just

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

God, You know our deepest sorrow,
In your care, we place our trust.
All compassion and forgiving,
Surely Lord, Thou art Just!

As our hearts abide in your love,
Receiving Grace anew each day.
Memories of loved ones filling,
All the joys, of yesterday.

Surely Lord, tis grand to know Thee,
Blessings abundant-Joy divine!
Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
I am His and He is mine!

No deeper thought can reassure us,
No greater Word than this can be!
God my Saviour - Jubilation!
"No man cometh unto the Father, but by me!"

No gates of Hell to bar our journey,
No sorrow, no tears to wipe away.
All creation, groaneth; travaileth,
For that grand and glorious day!

Trumpeters - All attention!
Sound the ready - Christ is come!
Precious loved one's await our entrance,
To that Glorious, Heavenly, Home.

Gone, oh earth are all your Kingdoms,
Treasures here, all but dust!
King of Kings and Lord of Lords,
Saviour Jesus, we worship thus!

Bowing knees in adoration,
Singing Praises to our God!
Rejoicing, being with our loved one's;
When Heavens streets of gold we trod.

Eternity - Oh Hallelujah!
Thank you Lord for saving me,
Greater love than this has no man
Jesus died on Calvary!

Sing my soul with psalms and praises,
Resting in that love of God!
Waiting for that coming glad day,
When our feet touch Heaven's Sod.

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
