WAIT FOR THEE

 

We shall not be ashamed that wait for Thee

Thou hast said in Thy Word

Thou who art Comfort and Rest to our souls

Thou who salvation secured.

 

I know it right well, Thy Spirit that lives

And moves in my heart every day

Giving my spirit to bear witness as well

Thou art my Light and my Stay

 

Not ashamed to own Thee as Master and Lord

For I know whom I have believed

And am persuaded as Paul That He is able

As I commit my way unto Thee

 

How awesome, how wondrous, how glorious Lord

You've come to live amongst men

And have sealed your blood bought, children of faith

Unashamed we declare this - AMEN!

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
