The Web of Faith

THE WEB OF FAITH


 


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
