Any day the Lord may come

And catch His bride away

I live in expectation of this

And am thankful everyday

That I have been redeemed.. .amen!

His blood ....sin's saving power

The curse of death is history

I await that wondrous hour


When Christ shall gather all the saints

And they come marching in

With the joy of heaven upon them

Each one delivered from sin

Clothed in robes of righteousness 

Purchased by His shed blood

There in the presence of fullness of glory

To stand before our God


Then kneeling down in affirmation 

That Jesus Christ is Lord

Once again fulfilling scripture

As found within God's Word

Humbled heavy hearted sinner's 

Knowing now pure sainthood

Attesting to that blessed fact

That only God is good!


In His presence oh what wonder

Heartfelt jubilation

The redeemed of  the earth gathered there

With the God of our Salvation 

All remembrance of former sin

Is gone from our memory

Living with the Light of the World

What a blessed Eternity!

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
