The Works of God

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

How will we work the works of God,
That's written in His Word?
How can we now the straight path trod,
Of salvation be assured?

How can we know today that God,
His wondrous grace, will impart?
Oh sinner, simply come this way,
And give to Christ your heart!

He makes us one in Christ you see,
He molds us for His Glory.
He is the sinner's perfect plea,
He is salvation's story!

His righteousness He doth impart,
So sinner come this way,
Give to Jesus Christ your heart,
And be made whole today!

Oh sinner simply come this way,
And give to Christ your heart,
Don't put it off another day,
His grace He will impart!

Trust in Him for mercy free,
His grace is all-sufficient,
When Jesus saves the guilty heart,
His Father's love is in it!

Awaken sinner from your sleep,
And Christ shall give thee light,
Look to yonder Calvary's Cross,
And be saved ere this night!

Of darkness comes upon your soul,
And then twill be too late,
Flee to Christ the Lamb of God,
Who took the sinner's place!

Gary J. Smith Copyright Feb. 24, 1977

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
