The Whole World Lights Up For Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



The whole world lights up for Jesus Christ every Christmas Day

The season turns to families, both near and far away

God could not help but celebrate the birth of such a Son

True Light of the world, Lord Jesus Christ, the Light for everyone

The Light of the world is Jesus Christ , just look around and see

The lights that sparkle on each house, the lights upon each tree

Celebration in the air, LOVE, comes down, to man

The Light of the world is Jesus Christ, ye must be born again!

Above the merchandizing...and of business’s gain

A motive of higher principal, the souls of dying men!

Dear Saviour, keep our hearts in tune, to sing this Christmas Day

The Light of the world is Jesus Christ, in a real meaningful way!

Nor heart devoid of true knowledge...for what our Saviour’s done

But those with glad assurance of, God’s gift! His own dear Son!

Hark the herald angels sing! Sing ye men as well!

Jesus Christ, our true Deliverer come!...God with us... Immanuel!

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
