Come unto Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

Come unto Me

Oftimes He fills our plate with cares

So we may come to Him

Bring our burdens to His feet

And worship Him again.

O Lord You're so mighty

So mighty to deliver

We stand in awe and contemplate

With an Amen! We have as quiver.

You who are All Knowing

The Beginning and the End

Have given us the framework

Since we've been born again.

You, our Sure Foundation

Our Hope, our Help, our Home

Orchestrating our daily lives

Straight from Heavens throne.

In the presence of the angels

Your mission is displayed

Played out, on earths surface

By the Hand through which it was made.

The elements and matter

They beckon to Your call

They come in dutiful obedience

They come... one and all.

We ask Thee Lordto use us

As beacons on the way

To be the lighthouse to our friends

And those who've gone astray.

Keep us in Thy presence

Ministering by Thy Spirit

Come unto Me, all ye who labor

Come unto Me, now hear it.

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
