God's Attributes
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



God's attributes are unchanging 

Praise God our God is good

His mercy is unceasing 

Yet often misunderstood 

He's not a God of idleness 

Nor sits with folded hands

But takes great pleasure in seeking 

Those obeying His commands


His grace to all earth's peoples 

Unrecognized as such

Yet crosses on church steeples

Prove His personal touch

The heaven's cannot contain Him

Yet to this earth He came

And brought Salvation in the Son

O praise His glorious name


He wants us all to love Him

And that with all our heart 

Today would be a great day

For that new change to start

Behold that God of wonder

Who in spite of all our sin

With longsuffering is patiently waiting 

For souls to let Him in


So to that cross of Calvary 

Behold Him...God the Son

The Creator and earth's Redeemer 

That blessed Holy One

With love that bore our burdens 

And let men do Him in

He did it all for our sake

Repent and trust in Him


O Holy Ghost of heaven 

Reach the hearts of men

And draw them unto Jesus 

To be there " born again "

For in that blessed Saviour 

Is life that's from above

Your Word that never faileth

Has shown to us this love

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
