We Soon Shall See His Face

WE SOON SHALL SEE HIS FACE



 



The heavens are the gates of praise



Where God enjoys His Son



Where angel hosts proclaim as well



Praise Thrice Holy One!



 



God's guaranteed approval



Upon our blessed Lord's deed



He that believeth on His Son



Shall be free indeed!



 



That precious blood of Jesus



Who in the sinner’s stead



Washed, cleansed, by His Word



Who’s risen from the dead!



 



Now rising up on eagles' wings



We take our blessed flight



And soar to realms of glory



From darkness into light!



 



Spirit that’s within us



He gives, praises too



Giving witness to our lives



That knows us though and through.



 



And prayer, our Sanctuary



We’re worshippers at heart



Knowing we have been forgiven



Forgiveness we impart!



 



Depths of gratitudal thanks



We give it to our Lord



Upon awakening each day



Which our Good God affords!



 



Flee from us, you inner thoughts



That think, to praise, dismiss



But praises to our Highest Lord



Who gives continual bliss!



 



Shallow are the dregs of sin



That satan has to offer



When compared with Jesus Christ



Who fills our worship coffers!



 



“That Mighty Fortress is our God



A bulwark never failing”



Who breaks the power of cancelled sin



That had our spirits wailing!



 



Now amidst that heavenly host



And all that dwells on earth



Testimonials of True Resurrection



For those of second birth!



 



When nighttime comes upon us



Considering where we’ve been



We trust the handiwork of God



In us, redeemed from sin!



 



The heavens declare the glory of God



His handiwork, the firmament showeth



Tis His own He giveth more grace



No unbelievers knoweth!



 



Surrounding us are demons



Whose evil ways never cease



But God gives blessed victory



Because He is our Peace!



 



Peace that passeth understanding



We marvel in His grace



Blessed with His comforting Words



We soon shall see His Face!

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
