We Await

We Await

We await the joy of justice
When God balances the scales
When what is right is glorified
Compared to the bad that fails
May we live in the righteousness
That we can have through Christ
And not be found in the wanting group
Who have neglected His Sacrifice

Yes there's a joy in justice
When the law rewards the truth
Openly are rejoicing hearts
Who share truth's brotherhood
Praise God for the truth of the Bible
Exemplified in Christ
Where we read His most precious words
I am the way...the truth...and the life

Upstanding and astounding
Praise God the truth never fails
It's as sure as God Himself
It's written it will always prevail 
To enjoy the worth of justice
Our evidence...our living Head
When sin demanded a payment price
He paid our debt for it instead!

Hallelujah for the law of holiness
Which is justice's joy supreme
The law of God affixed with love
Above all the crops it is cream
Where...though sin brings damages lives
As Satan always tries to disgrace
Along comes God wearing the gowns of forgiveness
Offering the repentant one's grace!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
