When I Look Back

WHEN I LOOK BACK

When I look back I  stand amazed
At the maze that I was in
Floundering upon the sea of life
And burdened down with sin
The Resurrection and the Life
From death has set me free
Now I'm singing praises
For Jesus rescued me

O sin tossed soul don't hesitate
To cry out in your need
The son of God stands ready to be
Your true helper indeed
One look to Him will satisfy
Your burden will be free
The Resurrection and the Life
The Man of Calvary

The hope that lies within my breast
It never fades away
Hope that lives Eternal
Is Jesus Christ my Stay
That staying power He given me
Delivering me from strife
My steadfast Friend He remains
The Resurrection and the Life

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
