The Telescope of Heaven
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

THE TELESCOPE OF HEAVEN




The telescope of heaven


Looks down on earth each day


Seeking for a man who will


Turn to God and pray


Will you be that one


Who will turn his heart aright


Seek the Lord while He may be found


Leave darkness enter light




His way is the highest


His thoughts above our own


We shall leave this earth below


And enter heaven's throne


Upon our time while waiting


The lost world needs Him too


We are to be the fisher's of men


It's what He's called us too




His cross has left its imprint


On hearts who know the Lord


Never are we the same again


Who've trusted in His Word


The dynamic now of living


For we've been born again


His love keeps on giving


Seeking still lost men




Time is still a marching


Then comes eternity


We can make the difference


To set a captive free


No longer do we live our lives


As they are but our own


We have come unto the cross


And knelt before His throne




He is still the King of Kings


In earth and heaven above


Our purchased, prized possesion


Who shed His precious blood


Cast thy burden on the Lord


For He can set you free


The telescope of heaven


Is waiting now for thee

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
