Designer Genes

DESIGNER GENES



 



I have my own designer genes



Given me from God



My DNA my very own



Since I've been on this sod



 



The atoms and the molecules



Tell others who I am



They have to use a microscope



Yet I'm known by the Lamb



 



Fashioned in my mother's womb



Before my birth I was



Deemed by God a chosen life



To own His worthy cause



 



I hear the voice of my Shepherd



He gently leads me Home



Clothed in God's own righteousness



When I appear before His Throne



 



So now I lay me down to sleep



Though tired as I am



I praise you Lord You safely keep



Those who know the Lamb

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
