It Is So Wonderful
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Father it is so wonderful

When You direct the day

Nothing misses Your attention

When we take time to pray

The things that seem insignificant

To others who are around

To us become real blessings

We live in Hallowed Ground

Our rejoicing is so precious

We know where joy comes from

Our strength is in the Lord

Through Him we overcome

Patiently we wait on Thee

For we can do none other

To us You are our closest Friend

More dearer than a brother

Souls that are lost You bring us too

They do not know that favour

We are but a link in the chain

That brings them to the Saviour

Our hearts are stedfast in the task

That You have called us to

Go ye forth and preach the Word

See what God can do!

Lord my heart still beats afresh

For souls who are lost

An never ending fervent love

To lift up Calvary's Cross

Where Thy Son was crucified

His blood shed for all men

May I see some souls take heed

Be truly born again!

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
