Safe in My Father's Own Hand

SAFE IN MY FATHER’S OWN HAND

 

 

I rejoice in the shadow

Of the wings of the Almighty

It is there that I find sweet rest

Trusting in Him

Who has done so mightily

Sheltered as a chick in her nest

 

To see Thy power and Thy glory

You speak and it happens

Nothing preventeth Thy Word

My soul shall be satisfied

As with marrow and fatness

Such is my meditation O Lord

 

Early have I sought Thee

Thou art fresh water

Even in a dry thirsty land

Better than life

Is Thy loving kindness

I’m safe in my Father’s own Hand.

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
