Fastened unto the Father

FASTENED UNTO THE FATHER
 
The interlocking chains of faith
That bring the sinner home
Are interwoven by His Spirit
Through which the victory's won
The chain that binds us to the Master
The chain that makes us free
Is dangling by a thread from Heaven
Held by none stronger than He
 
It gives us movement to endeavor
The tasks He has at hand
Providing protection for each believer
While stretching out His plan
Strong are those ties that bind us
That bind my God and I
Never a moment of separation
Not now, nor when I die
 
I am in my Father`s hand
Grace and mercy, praise
Extending forgiveness to my fellowman
Each and every day
Owned by Him, who owns my Spirit
I cannot be more free
Chains of faith, chains of love
Praise God, He chaineth me.

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
