The Web of Faith
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



The web of faith is woven with

The scarlet threads of blood

Where men of God endued with power

Did service for Him above

Death had no fearing grip on them

For He who was "I Am"

Showed Himself strong on their behalf

Time and time again


God's own people ......Israel

Received His special favour 

For iit was through them our Lord would come

And offer Himself as Saviour 

Prophetic truth's revealed in Christ

Which He was bold in telling

He the Word in God incarnate

Which prophets were for telling 


No rips or tears in that web

It's woven so securely 

Sealed by the martyrs glue

The base of our security

For it's held fast by Jesus blood

It shall never lose it's power

The web of faith grows day by day

Every moment of every hour!


Cast your web out to the sea

It may catch some fishes

Cast it out continually

Just as Jesus wishes

Do not fear but be ye strong

For you are God filled men

Bare  the web of faith with honor

For Jesus is coming 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
