Close to Christmas

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

Well, its getting close to Christmas
Another year is almost gone
God has given many opportunities
To believe in Jesus Christ His Son

Yet how many never ponder
Never think of Eternity
Only living for the present
Only concerned about today

Eating, drinking, being merry!
But alas! It soon will end
Christ is coming back in judgment
Will you know Him then as friend?

The angels herald His earthly entrance
All mankind should do so too
The Lamb without one spot or blemish
Died to make us born anew

All the earth's worldly treasures
Could not buy what Kings have sought
Peace of mind through Gods forgiveness
With His precious blood was bought

God has made a way for sinners
To enter into heavens gate
Trust in Jesus, trust Him now
Before it is too late

As angels herald His earthly entrance
Told about His lowly birth
They will (Let them) as well rejoice in heaven
When you have your second birth!

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
