O for a Faith
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


O for a faith that soars beyond
The things that we can see
And then would grasp the fact that God
Has love for you and me

And in spite of all the sin
We spew out everyday
Is waiting still to show forth love
In such a forgiving way

Our heart's though hardened to His Word
Can know of a faithful grace
That takes our sin and looses it from
Its former holding place

And through the blood of Jesus Christ
Comes fullest righteousness
For God so loved the world He made
He gives His faith to bless

Lose off with all the things you see
Don't hold on them to tightly
For you have an appointment one day
With the Lord God Almighty

And then what value in those things
You treasured here so dearly
You'll see more clear than you've ever seen
How faith is the victory surely

So let faith soar to it's rightful place
And walk thou circumspectly
You are but a mortal man
Who'll appear before Him one day

Take hold of the faith that God exists
And let Him prove His power
Let Him reward you for your diligent search
And be quickened this very hour

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
