An Angel
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



An angel named the baby

That was born in Bethlehem

An angel gave to Joseph

His directions for God’s plan.


An angel gave Zachariah

The name for his son too

As his wife Elizabeth marveled

Just at what our God would do


The angel of the Lord

The angel Gabriel

With some heaven sent directions

Had such wondrous news to tell



These women were God chosen

To birth Israeli sons

One annointed, John the Baptist

The other Salvation's Song


Emmanuel God with us

Hallelujah for that name

We sing the songs of Jesus

Salvation to proclaim


Our sins can be forgiven

When truly we repent

The grandest news on earth

From Heavens now been sent


We sing a Merry Christmas

We have a happy heart

We are, a redeemed people

O Lord How Great Thou Art!

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
