I Raise a Flag of Glory

I RAISE A FLAG OF GLORY

 

I raise a flag of glory in my heart each day

And there it reigns victoriously for Jesus is my Stay

It's flown for every nation, for every tribe and tongue

Proclaiming glad Salvation, through Jesus, God's own Son

 

Wind and rain and fury, can never move its mast

There it stands in splendour, while trials of life go past

There to show its colours, waves of crimson red

Reminder to the whole wide world, Jesus blood was shed

 

One side red as crimson, the other side white as snow

Both colours giving testimony too, Righteousness for the soul

Freedom for believer's, as sin has met its match

No more can satan have domain and helpless victim's snatch

 

God who's wrought Deliverance, has sewn the fabric fine

Unfurl your flag of faith today and let His Glory shine

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
