A Choice to Rejoice
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

A choice to rejoice, thank You Lord for this
Knowing Christ as Saviour, gives my soul sweet bliss
While all around me rages, trials and testings sure
In the Rock Of Ages, I know I am secure
Smiles come in billows, waves of joy and mirth
As I think upon my Saviour, who giveth me new birth
Happiness, contentment, above the world this peace
Receiving His grace daily , increase by increase
Resting in His promises, standing on them too
Which give each believer, Heaven's point of view
From this So Great Salvation, solidified in Christ
I never cease to praise Him, who paid my ransom price
All glory, laud, and honour, unto Christ that King
Praise Him all ye children, praise in everything
Who can know such pleasure, from Him who's meek and mild
Giving love, His awesome love, to each, His precious child.

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
