Praise God

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Praise God we have, a direct line

To our Lord above

Who instanteously hears our prayers

He is the God of love

And when we come on bended knee

To bring Him our petitions

He loves to see the broken heart

Confessing sins admissions

When we err from Father's way

To do our will instead

He blesses with His chastening rod

He is our Living Head

Such a slip we think as minor

We think it insignificant

To Him it is a major error

He seeks us to repent

For in the Father's will we find

Life that is abundant

Why try to let the old flesh reign

When that should be redundant

For we are anew creation in Christ

Greatgift of the Holy Spirit

Which He tells us not to grieve

But to submit,unto It

So live the life now given to you

Live unto the Master

If you need to increase your faith

It's something you can ask for

For God needs vessels fit for Him

Be ye therefore Holy

He givesrichest blessings to Hisown

Both thehigh and lowly

Keep your mind stayed on Him

Enjoy His perfect Peace

Rest in the meditation of

He isour Sure release

Now we're free to serve the Lord

What Word we have to share

Go yeforth in Spirit filled power

Armed with fervent prayer

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
