I Hang My Hat upon the Fact

I  Hang My Hat upon the Fact
 
 
I hang my hat upon the fact
In the beginning God
He created the heaven and  earth
Then they as witness stood
To watch unfold His grand design
To do as He had planned
Marvelled at His tenderness
As He created man
 
The breath of life was breathed in him
He became a living soul
Dispatched by God to Eden's garden
Where temptation took its toll
Sin's sting of death was soon to come
As Adam and Eve disobeyed
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil
Would lead them to the grave
 
God's heart was broken when He saw
What satan had led them to
But praise God He gave a sacrifice
To cover the sin ensued
By one man's disobedience
Sin came into the world
And by the obedience of One
Fends satan's darts that are hurled
 
God Himself came as a son
Became the son of man
Endured the pain unto the Cross
Praise God He rose again
Heaven and earth bare witness still
Until that coming day
When they themselves shall be no more
They too shall pass away
 
 New heaven and new earth will come
They'll bare witness to
The King of kings and Lord of lords
His Mercy seat in view
The Lion of the tribe of Judah
Who is the great I AM
Shows His wounds to all the world
He truly is the Lamb

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
