Thank God for Angels
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

How I thank God for angels

That watch over me each day

That have surely been my protectors

When danger came my way

So many situations

As I think of days gone by

When I’m sure they’ve done double duty

Known to God and I


I often read  of stories

Or have heard the stories told

When others have given testimony to

The angels of the Lord

Because God’s my Habitation

Yes, He now lives in me

And to whomsoever believes on Him

He gives angels charge over thee.


To keep thee in all thy ways

To bear thee up in their hands

From dashing thy foot against a stone

Even protection from lions

We have an army of angels

Sent with utmost submission

To do the bidding of our God

In every situation.


For longevity they help us

We long to be aged saints

No task is insurmountable

Never an angel faints

Though I seldom think upon

My angels such as friends

I thank my God for them

For their duty never ends.

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
