I took those baby steps of faith,
And fell so many times.
But there was Father, to pick me up.
So thankful, He is mine.

In the comfort of His arms,
He laid me down to rest.
Preparing me for another day,
When I could stand the test.

What transition it then became,
To walk from faith to faith.
Not trusting in mine own ways,
But trusting in His grace.

My baby faith has grown a lot,
Since I've become a man.
But still I need my Fathers' care.
He holds me in His Hand.

My faith is now much stronger than,
When I was a babe in Christ.
I know in whom I have believed,
Who paid the ransom price.

Faith is the victory I have,
My Father gives it free.
I've trusted in The Truth, The Life,
The Way, my Liberty.

I step out afresh each day,
My faith is now increased.
My Fathers' love is with me still.
It shall never cease.

So babe in Christ, rejoice, I say,
Take those steps and grow.
Knowing that your Father
Is with you as you go.

Face your new tomorrows
With the strength He gives
Remember Hell never forsake you
He lives! He lives! He lives!

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
