CERTIFICATION OF FAITH
 
Our certification of faith, a life that seeks to please
Father above who has given us, a Saviour to meet all our needs
Serving with heart filled surrender,Lord what wilt Thou have me do
Then glady being poured out for service, for Jesus who first loved you
 
The fields are ripe unto harvest, who are the reapers He sends
Those who are burdened for lost ones, for enemies, for family,for friends
Keep your heart warm in the Spirit, do not be walking in flesh
Confess all known sin and forsake it, God settles for nothing less
 
Ye who have signed up for battle, remember the Victory's won
We have, a threefold ally, in Father, and Spirit, and Son
Show up for your marching orders, be ye prepared for the day
When the enemy, comes in like a flood, God's army is ready for the fray.

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
