Hurry Back to the Father
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Looking forward to the joy

That before Him was set

Jesus went to Calvary's cross

To release from satan's net

The grave was suprised at His tenure

Three days and He was gone

Glad proclamation filled the air

He's not here! He has arisen!


Some of His followers fishermen

Began their new careers

They would become fishers of men

Until their dying years

And then their deaths' jubilation!

Present with the Lord

Confirmation of their faith

In God's Holy Word


Hurry back to the Father

His arms are open wide

Forgiveness without measure

Flows from Jesus' side

Blood that cleanses from sin

Washes white as snow

Love stretched out at Calvary

Makes the sinner whole


`Ah spring is in the air

Freshness, new life, vigour

Good Friday is on It's way

Then celebration, Easter!

All glory to the cross of Christ

His utterance "It is finished!"

Whose light doth shine eternally

And never shall diminish.

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
