God's Promises
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



God's promises are precious

God's promises are true

God's promises are completed when

His promises are believed by you


I will never leave thee nor forsake thee

That's His promise sure

Lo, I am with you always

Is a promise that will endure


My sheep hear my voice and I know them

They will follow Me

Only the Good Shepherd can make that promise

He's the Shepherd of a sheep that's me


I was once a lost sheep

Had wandered far from the fold

The kindly Shepherd sought me

Now I'm safe in His hold


I trust in His precious promises

I rest in His saving faith

I'm in His hand, He'll not cast me out

I am victor over the grave


Because He's the Resurrection and Life

I live in Him complete

Not striving for an uncertain hope

But trusting in His Mercy Seat


O boundless grace how glorious

Saved by the blood of the Lamb

You ask me how I know He lives

Why, I've been born again!

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
