The Telescope of Heaven
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


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
