Truth Came Walking

TRUTH CAME WALKING


 


Truth came walking in sandals


And spread abroad His Word


He came  that men could be redeemed


Made sure that message was heard.


 


Hand chosen, were His followers


He knew each and every heart


Those who were His faithful friends


The one, who would depart.


 


He set His face as a flint


There was no deviation


Obedient to His Father above


He gives so great Salvation.


 


The heart though desperately wicked


Can be cleansed from sin


That great gift Giver Jesus Christ


Will come and live within.


 


Now Resurrection's Victor


The Just One's jubilation


That Word. still being preached


To every tribe and nation.


 


Religion?  No!  A relationship


Is what counts in the end


Jesus Christ is that Life


The true believers' Friend.

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
