A Favorite Author

My favorite author is Jesus Christ
Through Whom the worlds were made
He had some fantastic stories
Even rising from the grave.
Many miracles did He perform
Still some did not believe
His disciples though bore witness to
When His earth, He did leave.

Changed lives gave edidence of
The power of faith in Him
Went on giving testimony
To His forgiveness for their sin.
He backed up all the claims He made
His words forever true
More reason for believing on Him
Who died for me and you.

His great book all non-fiction
Every word is true
Confirmation, fulfilled prophecy
Read it all the way through.
He gave His signature in many places
When He said, "Thus saith"
Praise God I'm blessed in the Son
Author and Finisher of my faith.

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
