What A Strong Foundation

What a strong foundation
To keep our soul's at ease
The everlasting Word of God
The Bible if you please
For all those yea's and amen's
Solidify our faith
For we believe every Word written
Of the Lord's..."Thus saith"

And present with His Word... amen!
We have unconditional love
The very Presence of our God
Who watches from above
When sin comes to mess us up
And leave us in turmoil
Our Holy Spirit Comforter
Protects us from its spoil

For instruction from the Word
Directs us in our thought
We are motivated by Its power
To erase what sin had sought
O that blood of Jesus Christ
That cleanses us from sin
It still has forgiveness power
To walk again with Him

And in the Light of His Presence
Our hearts continue in song
May Jesus Christ be praised
Its melody all day long
High and Holy lifted up
Our glorious God most High
We praise You for Your Word O Lord
May Your name be magnified!

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
