God Plants Us

GOD PLANTS US

God plants us where He wants us
In this He is steadfast
He keeps us firmly in His grip
Til we complete the task
We know that He has called us
No need to fuss and fret
But patiently endure the time
Until His deadlines met

Let joy become your pleasure
Learn to sing and pray
Give praise unto the Master
Who turns the night to day
Then live your life with passion
A passion for the lost
Lift up the name of Jesus Christ
Who died upon the cross

Live then unto others
To them a servant be
Know the jubilation
When Jesus sets them free
Then what adulation
That we bring to the Son
When others worship Him as well
He says, "Well done, my son."

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
