When Creation Takes a Breather
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

When creation takes a breather
And no longer has to exist
For it will be made anew in splendor
By that Son of Righteousness.
No, No, No!
God helping me, I'll refrain
From the unfruitful works of darkness
That blasphemes Jesus' name.

Not one spot or wrinkle
Were on His garments found
Unrighteousness has no fellowship with
The One Who bore the crown.
His blood was shed for sinners
But blood not tainted such
Not with a body of human birth
But was virgin born for us.

That scoffer, scorner, screamer
That yelled out "Crucify Him!"
Will gaze in awesome wonder when
Lord Jesus comes again.
and how the Spirit groaneth
Awaiting that coming day
When God the Father and God the Son
Experience Coronation Day.

When every knee shall bow
And every tongue confess
To the glory of God the Father
Who became sin for us no less
I'm glad that I have found Him
Who knows me through and through
And O my friend do not neglect
To find this Saviour too!

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
