Lord You Are All Powerful
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Lord You are all powerful,

Almighty God are You

You generate the energy

To see the believer through

By Your Holy Spirit

Indwelling us down here

We’ve no cause for worry

Nor any cause for fear


You have triumphed mightily

Over sin, death, and hell.

All the ransomed hosts now sing

With our soul tis  well

Though satan seeks to devour us

In our walk each day

We can have the Victory

For Lord, You are our Stay


For greater is He that’s within us

Than he that is in the world

With our shield of faith

Deflecting darts that are hurled

We have a conflict daily

Yet You have said “Stand fast”

The trials you are experiencing

These too shall pass


With no hope the people perish

But Lord our hope’s in Thee

Creator and Redeemer

The Lamb of Calvary

Now we’re really living

For up from the grave You arose

Righteousness exalts that nation

Whom our God doth know


With steps of faith we plod on

Here am I, use me

Make my heart a burden place

For lost souls such as we

Give out the bread my brother

Pass out the water too

Give that Bread of Life to others

That they may drink Anew

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
