Your Faithfulness

YOUR FAITHFULNESS

 

Lord thank you, for Your faithfulness

Your love and tender care

For when my heart is heavy Lord

You are present there.

 

You do not need the rest

That we as humans do

For you are ever watchful

Each day’s the same for you

 

You never sleep nor slumber

But are constantly alert

To all the pressing problems whereby

Your loved ones could be hurt.

 

Angels give attendance to

And beckon at Your call

As they came rescuing Peter

As they came nurturing Paul.

 

Charge over us, You’ve given them

They joyously respond

For errands their dispatch requires

They do it with a song.

 

What pleasure to be of service in

The presence of You Lord

‘Tis service we look forward too

That’s promised in Your Word.

 

Such joy we have at present

More joyous in future will be

When we in glorified body

Shall be with Faithful Thee.

 

There, our praises never ceasing

We’ll sing with all the redeemed

Because of our faith in Jesus Christ

Praise You King of Kings.

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
